Abstract

Internet-based applications that offer (or require) user interaction are becoming more common. Such applications typically generate traffic consisting of short, or bursty, TCP flows. As TCP is designed to work better for long-lived bulk flows, a lot of research have recently focused at optimizing TCP for short flows. In this paper, we identify a performance problem for short flows, caused by the TCP metric caching in Linux. Using the cache, a single packet loss can potentially ruin the performance for all future flows to the same destination by making them start in congestion avoidance instead of slow-start. We illustrate the problem in a number of test-bed experiments and propose a modified caching strategy that explicitly considers flow lengths
