Transparent TCP-to-SCTP Translation Using Shim Rules-Table Dynamic Configuration
Using the application of bulk data transfer, we investigate the performance of existing TCP-to-SCTP Translation shim scheme under the scenario of shim rules-table is static (i.e., manual). We find that a potential problem named stale shim rules-table value caused by shim rules-table static configuration, which induces TCP-to-SCTP Translation does not startup in time. Based on this, we present a suggestion called Shim Rules-table Dynamic Configuration (SRDC) for TCP-to-SCTP Translation to implement the real-time startup and to improve the throughput of SCTP association by modify original shim rules-table command list, original socket option, original function of connection( ) and sosend( ).
