The two problems

The two problems Two key problems with the engineering of TCP implementations have been observed; we call these the small-packet problem and the source-quench problem. The second is being addressed by several implementors; the first is generally believed (incorrectly) to be solved. We have discovered that once the small-packet problem has been solved, the source-quench problem becomes much more tractable. We thus present the small-packet problem and our solution to it first.
