Internet Congestion Control Census

The Internet has recently been evolving from homogeneous congestion control to heterogeneous congestion control. Several years ago, Internet traffic was mainly controlled by the standard TCP AIMD algorithm, whereas Internet traffic is now controlled by many different TCP congestion control algorithms, such as AIMD, BIC, CUBIC, CTCP, HSTCP, HTCP, HYBLA, ILLINOIS, LP, STCP, VEGAS, VENO, WESTWOOD+, and YEAH. However, there is very little work on the performance and stability study of the Internet with heterogeneous congestion control. One fundamental reason is the lack of the deployment information of different TCP algorithms. The goals of this project are to
