Abstract

A flow control scheme might use the offered load of a Pipe i, namely Oi, in which the packet belongs, and the maximum and minimum desired rates for this pipe, namely Hi and Li, to determine the transmit probability of the packet. The basic idea is to use the same parameters, that is, Oi, Hi, and Li, to meter and mark a packet. Thus each Flow i 1, 2, ..., M, has two
