Hi Sebastian,

> If this is easy to implement, could you please propose a description of such a solution to the mailing list please? As far as I can tell RT- bias has been a topic of research for decades and still no general solution has beed presented, so I am quite interested to learn more about this comment. Even if the response is something like "for the expected range of RTTs from 1ms to 20 ms" a solution like TCP Pragues, pretend all RTTs are 20ms" I am quite interested in apple's thoughts.

I think the simple proposal in Linux (which you already know) is a good starting point. As a community, we might come up with more heuristics / tunable parameters to handle edge cases.

Thanks,
Vidhi

There was disagreement that using time only and not packet count is a foolproof solution. As far as I understand the objection is to the current wording that a time based mechanism is the only/sufficient way to assure this.

I personally could support wording that expresses the core of the requirement, and not limit the text to one mechanism, which would allow alternative/more robust implementations. The requirement could be expressed as something like: “a scalable congestion control SHOULD  be resilient to reordering over an (adaptive) (time?) interval, which scales with / adapts to throughput, as opposed to counting only in (fixed) units of packets (as in the 3 DupACK rule of RFC 5681 TCP), which is not scalable”. Let’s further discuss here on the list what could be for all parties an acceptable wording.

>> To get a better understanding on the level of consensus on the Prague requirements, we prepared an overview document listing the L4S-ID draft requirements specific to the CC (wider Prague requirements), as a questionnaire towards potential CC developers. If you are developing or have developed an L4S congestion control, you can describe the status of your ongoing development in the second last column. If you cannot share status, or plan-to/would implement an L4S CC, you can list what you would want to support (see feasible). In the last column you can put any description/limitations/remarks/explanations related to evaluations, implementations and/or plans (will implement or will not implement). Any expected or experienced issues and any objections/disagreements to the requirement can be explained and colored appropriately.
