The Research and Implementation of TCP Measurement Technology


Article Preview

This article gives the outline of the method of TCP measurement, and the open source codes are combined to make the active measurement for TCP into reality. Some network parameters such as throughput, bandwidth and TCP windows size can be measured to show the performance of the network. Accordingly the network stream can be observed, the network capacity and the performance is determined so that the network can provide higher QOS.
