        Title           : Requirements for Time-Based Loss Detection
        Author          : Mark Allman
	Filename        : draft-ietf-tcpm-rto-consider-17.txt

Abstract:
    Many protocols must detect packet loss for various reasons (e.g., to
    ensure reliability using retransmissions or to understand the level
    of congestion along a network path).  While many mechanisms have
    been designed to detect loss, ultimately, protocols can only count
    on the passage of time without delivery confirmation to declare a
    packet "lost".  Each implementation of a time-based loss detection
    mechanism represents a balance between correctness and timeliness
    and therefore no implementation suits all situations.  This document
    provides high-level requirements for time-based loss detectors
    appropriate for general use in unicast communication across the
    Internet.  Within the requirements, implementations have latitude to
    define particulars that best address each situation.
