2018-02-28net/tcp/illinois: replace broken algorithm reference linkJoey Pabalinas1-1/+1
The link to the pdf containing the algorithm description is now a dead link; it seems http://www.ifp.illinois.edu/~srikant/ has been moved to https://sites.google.com/a/illinois.edu/srikant/ and none of the original papers can be found there... I have replaced it with the only working copy I was able to find. n.b. there is also a copy available at: http://citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc/download?doi= However, this seems to only be a *cached* version, so I am unsure exactly how reliable that link can be expected to remain over time and have decided against using that one.

2016-11-21tcp: add cwnd_undo functions to various tcp cc algorithmsFlorian Westphal1-0/+10
congestion control algorithms that do not halve cwnd in their .ssthresh should provide a .cwnd_undo rather than rely on current fallback which assumes reno halving (and thus doubles the cwnd). All of these do 'something else' in their .ssthresh implementation, thus store the cwnd on loss and provide .undo_cwnd to restore it again. A followup patch will remove the fallback and all algorithms will need to provide a .cwnd_undo function. Signed-off-by: Florian Westphal <fw@strlen.de> Signed-off-by: David S.

Replace 2 arguments (cnt and rtt) in the congestion control modules' pkts_acked() function with a struct. This will allow adding more information without having to modify existing congestion control modules (tcp_nv in particular needs bytes in flight when packet was sent).

2015-04-17inet_diag: fix access to tcp cc informationEric Dumazet1-3/+3
Two different problems are fixed here : 1) inet_sk_diag_fill() might be called without socket lock held. icsk->icsk_ca_ops can change under us and module be unloaded. -> Access to freed memory. Fix this using rcu_read_lock() to prevent module unload. 2) Some TCP Congestion Control modules provide information but again this is not safe against icsk->icsk_ca_ops change and nla_put() errors were ignored. Some sockets could not get the additional info if skb was almost full. Fix this by returning a status from get_info() handlers and using rcu protection as well.

2014-02-26tcp: switch rtt estimations to usec resolutionEric Dumazet1-1/+0
Upcoming congestion controls for TCP require usec resolution for RTT estimations. Millisecond resolution is simply not enough these days. FQ/pacing in DC environments also require this change for finer control and removal of bimodal behavior due to the current hack in tcp_update_pacing_rate() for 'small rtt' TCP_CONG_RTT_STAMP is no longer needed. As Julian Anastasov pointed out, we need to keep user compatibility : tcp_metrics used to export RTT and RTTVAR in msec resolution, so we added RTT_US and RTTVAR_US. An iproute2 patch is needed to use the new attributes if provided by the kernel. In this example ss command displays a srtt of 32 usecs (10Gbit link) lpk51:~# ./ss -i dst lpk52 Netid State Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address:Port Peer Address:Port tcp ESTAB 0 1 cubic wscale:6,6 rto:201 rtt:0.032/0.001 ato:40 mss:1448 cwnd:10 send 3620.0Mbps pacing_rate 7240.0Mbps unacked:1 rcv_rtt:993 rcv_space:29559 Updated iproute2 ip command displays : lpk51:~# ./ip tcp_metrics | grep age 561.914sec cwnd 10 rtt 274us rttvar 213us source Old binary displays : lpk51:~# ip tcp_metrics | grep age 561.914sec cwnd 10 rtt 250us rttvar 125us source With help from Julian Anastasov, Stephen Hemminger and Yuchung Cheng Signed-off-by: Eric Dumazet <edumazet@google.com> Acked-by: Neal Cardwell <ncardwell@google.com> Cc: Stephen Hemminger <stephen@networkplumber.org> Cc: Yuchung Cheng <ycheng@google.com> Cc: Larry Brakmo <brakmo@google.com> Cc: Julian Anastasov <ja@ssi.bg> Signed-off-by: David S.

2013-11-04tcp: properly handle stretch acks in slow startYuchung Cheng1-2/+3
Slow start now increases cwnd by 1 if an ACK acknowledges some packets, regardless the number of packets. Consequently slow start performance is highly dependent on the degree of the stretch ACKs caused by receiver or network ACK compression mechanisms (e.g., delayed-ACK, GRO, etc). But slow start algorithm is to send twice the amount of packets of packets left so it should process a stretch ACK of degree N as if N ACKs of degree 1, then exits when cwnd exceeds ssthresh. A follow up patch will use the remainder of the N (if greater than 1) to adjust cwnd in the congestion avoidance phase. In addition this patch retires the experimental limited slow start (LSS) feature. LSS has multiple drawbacks but questionable benefit. The fractional cwnd increase in LSS requires a loop in slow start even though it's rarely used. Configuring such an increase step via a global sysctl on different BDPS seems hard. Finally and most importantly the slow start overshoot concern is now better covered by the Hybrid slow start (hystart) enabled by default.

2012-11-01net: fix divide by zero in tcp algorithm illinoisJesper Dangaard Brouer1-3/+5
Reading TCP stats when using TCP Illinois congestion control algorithm can cause a divide by zero kernel oops. The division by zero occur in tcp_illinois_info() at: do_div(t, ca->cnt_rtt); where ca->cnt_rtt can become zero (when rtt_reset is called) Steps to Reproduce: 1. Register tcp_illinois: # sysctl -w net.ipv4.tcp_congestion_control=illinois 2. Monitor internal TCP information via command "ss -i" # watch -d ss -i 3. Establish new TCP conn to machine Either it fails at the initial conn, or else it needs to wait for a loss or a reset. This is only related to reading stats. The function avg_delay() also performs the same divide, but is guarded with a (ca->cnt_rtt > 0) at its calling point in update_params(). Thus, simply fix tcp_illinois_info(). Function tcp_illinois_info() / get_info() is called without socket lock. Thus, eliminate any race condition on ca->cnt_rtt by using a local stack variable. Simply reuse info.tcpv_rttcnt, as its already set to ca->cnt_rtt. Function avg_delay() is not affected by this race condition, as its called with the socket lock.

2007-11-30[TCP] illinois: Incorrect beta usageStephen Hemminger1-1/+1
Lachlan Andrew observed that my TCP-Illinois implementation uses the beta value incorrectly: The parameter beta in the paper specifies the amount to decrease *by*: that is, on loss, W <- W - beta*W but in tcp_illinois_ssthresh() uses beta as the amount to decrease *to*: W <- beta*W This bug makes the Linux TCP-Illinois get less-aggressive on uncongested network, hurting performance. Note: since the base beta value is .5, it has no impact on a congested network.

2007-07-31[TCP]: congestion control API pass RTT in microsecondsStephen Hemminger1-5/+3
This patch changes the API for the callback that is done after an ACK is received. It solves a couple of issues: * Some congestion controls want higher resolution value of RTT (controlled by TCP_CONG_RTT_SAMPLE flag). These don't really want a ktime, but all compute a RTT in microseconds. * Other congestion control could use RTT at jiffies resolution. To keep API consistent the units should be the same for both cases, just the resolution should change. Signed-off-by: Stephen Hemminger <shemminger@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: David S.

Commit 164891aadf1721fca4dce473bb0e0998181537c6 broke RTT sampling of congestion control modules. Inaccurate timestamps could be fed to them without providing any way for them to identify such cases. Previously RTT sampler was called only if FLAG_RETRANS_DATA_ACKED was not set filtering inaccurate timestamps nicely. In addition, the new behavior could give an invalid timestamp (zero) to RTT sampler if only skbs with TCPCB_RETRANS were ACKed. This solves both problems.
