2022-04-06tcp: add accessors to read/set tp->snd_cwndEric Dumazet1-2/+2
We had various bugs over the years with code breaking the assumption that tp->snd_cwnd is greater than zero. Lately, syzbot reported the WARN_ON_ONCE(!tp->prior_cwnd) added in commit 8b8a321ff72c ("tcp: fix zero cwnd in tcp_cwnd_reduction") can trigger, and without a repro we would have to spend considerable time finding the bug. Instead of complaining too late, we want to catch where and when tp->snd_cwnd is set to an illegal value.

2020-03-16tcp: fix stretch ACK bugs in ScalablePengcheng Yang1-8/+9
Change Scalable to properly handle stretch ACKs in additive increase mode by passing in the count of ACKed packets to tcp_cong_avoid_ai(). In addition, because we are now precisely accounting for stretch ACKs, including delayed ACKs, we can now change TCP_SCALABLE_AI_CNT to 100.

2016-11-21tcp: add cwnd_undo functions to various tcp cc algorithmsFlorian Westphal1-0/+15
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.

2015-01-28tcp: stretch ACK fixes prepNeal Cardwell1-1/+2
LRO, GRO, delayed ACKs, and middleboxes can cause "stretch ACKs" that cover more than the RFC-specified maximum of 2 packets. These stretch ACKs can cause serious performance shortfalls in common congestion control algorithms that were designed and tuned years ago with receiver hosts that were not using LRO or GRO, and were instead politely ACKing every other packet. This patch series fixes Reno and CUBIC to handle stretch ACKs. This patch prepares for the upcoming stretch ACK bug fix patches. It adds an "acked" parameter to tcp_cong_avoid_ai() to allow for future fixes to tcp_cong_avoid_ai() to correctly handle stretch ACKs, and changes all congestion control algorithms to pass in 1 for the ACKed count. It also changes tcp_slow_start() to return the number of packet ACK "credits" that were not processed in slow start mode, and can be processed by the congestion control module in additive increase mode. In future patches we will fix tcp_cong_avoid_ai() to handle stretch ACKs, and fix Reno and CUBIC handling of stretch ACKs in slow start and additive increase mode.

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.

2005-11-10[TCP]: fix congestion window update when using TSO deferalStephen Hemminger1-1/+2
TCP peformance with TSO over networks with delay is awful. On a 100Mbit link with 150ms delay, we get 4Mbits/sec with TSO and 50Mbits/sec without TSO. The problem is with TSO, we intentionally do not keep the maximum number of packets in flight to fill the window, we hold out to until we can send a MSS chunk. But, we also don't update the congestion window unless we have filled, as per RFC2861. This patch replaces the check for the congestion window being full with something smarter that accounts for TSO.

2005-08-29[ICSK]: Move TCP congestion avoidance members to icskArnaldo Carvalho de Melo1-2/+4
This changeset basically moves tcp_sk()->{ca_ops,ca_state,etc} to inet_csk(), minimal renaming/moving done in this changeset to ease review. Most of it is just changes of struct tcp_sock * to struct sock * parameters. With this we move to a state closer to two interesting goals: 1. Generalisation of net/ipv4/tcp_diag.c, becoming inet_diag.c, being used for any INET transport protocol that has struct inet_hashinfo and are derived from struct inet_connection_sock. Keeps the userspace API, that will just not display DCCP sockets, while newer versions of tools can support DCCP. 2. INET generic transport pluggable Congestion Avoidance infrastructure, using the current TCP CA infrastructure with DCCP.

The algorithm has some nice scaling properties, and has been used a fair bit in research, though is known to have significant fairness issues, so it's not really suitable for general purpose use.
