Abstract

1.0 A Scheduling algorithm for transmitting files of smaller sizes faster than larger sized files. 1.1 Introduction This algorithm below describes a method of scheduling different threads of a multi-threaded TFTP server (where a separate thread handles each client request) so that the smaller requests get higher priority. The benchmarking tests stated below also indicate that the tests done with various file sizes indicate that the algorithm works as per design. The illustration is done with a TFTP server implementation, which has the File Size transfer option negotiation. 1.2 Overview of the algorithm
