[e2e] TCP Performance with Traffic Policing

since you does't send the sysctl's, it is hard to correctly interpret the time sequence graph. However, some facts
about the Linux 128kb run:
- The bursty behavior is not a missing delay on the reverse path (sorry my fault), it's a missing queuing delay.
- I never see Limited Transmit. Also, the sender sends almost never new data on incoming new dupacks
during recovery (Linux uses Rate Halving). Maybe we are limited by the send window here...
You can use iperf without the parameter to confirm this.
- NewReno can only send one retransmission per RTT. With your strange policer we have massive bursty
packet loss. We can see loss recovery phases for 4 sec. Use SACK.
- We see 6 RTOs
- Your receiver is not a linux box ;-) Why? Linux the Quick ACKs (= disabling Delayed ACKs) after an
out-of-oder phase, so that the sender can quickly enlarged his CWND
- All in all we have nearly more retransmissions than transmissions.Your problem is not TCP, it's your traffic
