CONFIG_TCP_CONG_WESTWOOD: TCP Westwood+

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_TCP_CONG_WESTWOOD:

Help text

TCP Westwood+ is a sender-side only modification of the TCP Reno protocol stack that optimizes the performance of TCP congestion control. It is based on end-to-end bandwidth estimation to set congestion window and slow start threshold after a congestion episode. Using this estimation, TCP Westwood+ adaptively sets a slow start threshold and a congestion window which takes into account the bandwidth used at the time congestion is experienced. TCP Westwood+ significantly increases fairness wrt TCP Reno in wired networks and throughput over wireless links.
