Paper Abstract

AQM (Active Queue Management) mechanism, which performs congestion control at a router for assisting the end-to-end congestion control mechanism of TCP, has been actively studied by many researchers. For instance, RED (Random Early Detection) is a representative AQM mechanism, which drops arriving packets with a probability being proportional to its average queue length. The RED router has four control parameters, and its effectiveness heavily depends on a choice of these control parameters. This is why many researches on the parameter tuning of RED control parameters have been performed. However, most of those studies have investigated the effect of RED control parameters on its performance from a small number of simulation results. In this paper, we therefore statistically analyze a great number of simulation results using the multivariate analysis. We quantitatively show the relation between RED control parameters and its performance.
