DRED: A random early detection algorithm for TCP/IP networks. It is now widely accepted that a RED controlIed queue certainly performs better than a drop-tail queue. But an inherent weakness of RED is that its equilibrium queue length cannot be maintained at a preset value independent of the number of TCP active connections. In addition, RED’s optimal parameter setting is largely correlated with the number of connections, the round-trip time, the buffer space, etc. In light of these observations, we propose DRED, a novel algorithm which uses the basic ideas of feedback control to randomly discard packets with a load-dependent probability when a buffer in a router gets congested. Over a wide range of load levels, DRED is able to stabilize a router queue occupancy at a level independent of the number of active TCP connections. The benefits of stabilized queues in a network are high resources utilization, predictable maximum delays, more certain buffer provisioning, and traffic-load-independent network performance in terms of traffic intensity and number of connections.
