  annote = {The design of the TCP implementation in Linux 2.4 is described in this paper. Focus is placed on congestion control and how the Linux implementation differs from conventional TCP implementations. The state machine for the TCP sender is explained. The Linux implementation supports standardized features (SACK, timestamps, and ECN), as well as more experimental features to enhance TCP performance (undoing window adjustments, D-SACK, FACK, congestion window validation, quick acks, rate-halving). The paper is concluded with a performance study of Linux TCP with and without quick acks, rate-halving and cwnd reverting enabled. In the setup used in the study quick acks, rate-halving and cwnd reverting increased performance.},
