I've put together a set of short ns scripts to carry out the tcp  
benchmark tests described in

Experimental evaluation of high-speed congestion control protocols,  
Li, Y.T, Leith,D., Shorten,R. Transactions on Networking, 2007 (see  

The ns scripts are at http://www.hamilton.ie/net/eval/tcptesting.zip.

Its now very easy to rerun these tests against proposed new  
congestion control algorithms.  Baseline tests for standard tcp, high- 
speed tcp, scalable tcp, bic tcp, fast tcp and htcp are reported in  
http://www.hamilton.ie/net/eval/ToNfinal.pdf and these experimental  
measurements can be directly compared against the simulation results  
generated by the script.

Let me know if you have any comments.
