Multipath TCP Scheduling for Thin Streams: Active Probing and One-way Delay-awareness

We provide a ready-to-use interactive demo of the thin stream scheduler of our IEE ICC 2018 paper and ready-to-use evaluation setups.

1. Getting Started

Please follow the Getting Started Instructions on the main page to install ProgMP. We extended the ProgMP Kernel to support one-way delay estimates, i.e., each subflow provides the following two additional properties:

DELAY_OUT

An estimator of the outgoing packet delay. Note that this is not an estimator of the actual delay, but enables a comparison between subflows. Please check the paper for additional details.

DELAY_In

An estimator of the incoming packet delay. Note that this is not an estimator of the actual delay, but enables a comparison between subflows. Please check the paper for additional details.

A separate patch for the one-way delay-estimations is available.

2. Thin Stream Scheduling

Thin streams, e.g., of online games, SSH- and control-connections, are usally long running connections which exihibit only a few packet per round-trip time.
