The modified Proactive feedback based flow control scheme for best-effort applications

High speed networks that are characterized by large bandwidth propagation delay products are expected to support applications with diverse traffic characteristics and Quality of Service (QoS) requirements. Thus, flow control schemes are needed for an efficient usage of the network bandwidth. A proactive feedback (PF) based flow control scheme developed by the author attempts to eliminate the bandwidth mismatch problem seen in such networks by generating and transmitting early feedbacks based on the application characteristics. In this paper, an extension of this scheme to large scale networks is presented. Due to the bottlenecked network nodes, some best effort applications may not be able to use their assigned bandwidth. For such cases, a modified version of the proactive feedback based (MPF) flow control scheme is introduced. It is observed that without affecting the other applications the best effort traffic can be significantly increased.
