I was wondering if OSes implement byte counting during congestion
avoidance. From my investigation it appears:
2.6.16 and higher implement RFC 3465 Appropriate Byte Counting during
slow start. However, it does not implement byte counting during
2) Windows XP
Does not implement byte counting during slow start and congestion
3) Windows Vista
Will implement RFC 3465 which means byte counting during slow start.
Not sure about byte counting during CA.
3) MacOS, FreeBSD, OpenBSD?
Does anyone who uses these OSes know if they implement byte counting
during slow-start and congestion avoidance?
