Maximization of throughput by effective queue management scheme for high speed network.


A new algorithm is proposed to control the congestion in the network based on the minimum drop ratio. Explicit Control Protocol (XCP) is adopted for high speed network, where the queue threshold is assigned to be 85% of the queue size. At the time of congestion, whenever the queue size reaches the threshold value, a new buffer is initialized which is half the queue size. This mechanism thus prevents the drop of packets and hence the drop ratio is minimized and throughput is maximized. Performance of bandwidth utilization, throughput and drop ratio is presented.

Keywords: Network, XCP, drop ratio, throughput, queue.
