Abstract [en]

The Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) was developed

to support the transfer of telephony signaling over

IP networks. One of the ambitions when designing SCTP

was to offer a robust transfer of traffic between hosts. For

this reason SCTP was designed to support multihoming,

which gives the possibility to set up several paths between

the same hosts in the same session. If the primary path between

a source machine and a destination machine breaks

down, the traffic may still be sent to the destination by utilizing

one of the alternate paths. The failover that occurs

when changing path is to be transparent to the application.

Consequently, the time between occurrence of a break on

the primary path until the traffic is run smoothly on one of

the alternate paths is important. This paper presents experimental

results concerning SCTP failover performance. The

focus in this paper is to evaluate the impact of the SACK

delay and link delay on the failover time as well as on the

maximum transfer time for a single message, which complements

earlier studies in this area. The results show a

significant performance impact of the SACK delay as well

as of the link delay. This suggests that the SACK delay

is an important parameter to tune to enhance application

transparency in failure situations
