Abstract:Users want web pages to load quickly. Because modern web pages make connections to many hosts, this requires that small flows complete quickly at high percentiles. We explore how to achieve this goal with protocols that do not require modifications to all the routers and agents transmitting the flow. Our simulations indicate that both Random Early Detection and Fair Queuing can significantly reduce flow completion times at both the median and the 99th percentile. Fair Queueing provides more consistent reductions across varying bandwidth-delay products and background traffic.
