Network and system characteristics[edit]

Bandwidth-delay product (BDP)[edit]

Bandwidth-delay product (BDP) is a term primarily used in conjunction with TCP to refer to the number of bytes necessary to fill a TCP ‘path’, i.e. it is equal to the maximum number of simultaneous bits in transit between the transmitter and the receiver.


The original TCP configurations supported TCP receive window sizebuffers of up to 65,535 (64 KiB — 1) bytes, which was adequate for slow links or links with small RTTs. Larger buffers are required by the high performance options described below.

TCP speed limits[edit]

Maximum achievable throughput for a single TCP connection is determined by different factors. One trivial limitation is the maximum bandwidth of the slowest link in the path. But there are also other, less obvious limits for TCP throughput. Bit errors can create a limitation for the connection as well as RTT.

Window size[edit]

In computer networking, RWIN (TCP Receive Window) is the amount of data that a computer can accept without acknowledging the sender. If the sender has not received acknowledgement for the first packet it sent, it will stop and wait and if this wait exceeds a certain limit, it may even retransmit. This is how TCP achieves reliable data transmission.

where RWIN is the TCP Receive Window and RTT is the round-trip time for the path.

Packet loss[edit]

When packet loss occurs in the network, an additional limit is imposed on the connection.[2] In the case of light to moderate packet loss when the TCP rate is limited by the congestion avoidance algorithm, the limit can be calculated according to the formula (Mathis, et al.):

TCP options for high performance[edit]

Receive Window Auto-tuning Level Options 2

A number of extensions have been made to TCP over the years to increase its performance over fast high-RTT links (‘long fat networks’ or LFNs).

Path MTU Discovery avoids the need for in-network fragmentation, increasing the performance in the presence of packet loss.
