Abstract

The last few years have seen network data rates skyrocket from a few Mbps to a Gbps or more. However, a lack of integration of the host-network interface, the operating system, and network protocols has resulted in end-applications that are able to exploit only a small fraction of the total bandwidth available for data transfer. This paper investigates the performances of the TCP/IP protocols over ATM networks. TCP/IP is the "de facto" standard for internetworking; the Asynchronous Transfer Mode is a standard networking technology for the broadband ISDN currently under development. The analysis activity included collecting traces with respect to different configurations of the relevant com
