Default Foundation Project Announcement

From http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/f...er/001353.html

Dear FreeBSD Community,

The FreeBSD Foundation is pleased to announce that Swinburne University
of Technology's Centre for Advanced Internet Architectures has been awarded
a grant to implement Five new TCP Congestion Control Algorithms in FreeBSD.

Correctly functioning congestion control (CC) is crucial to the
efficient operation of the Internet and IP networks in general. CC
dynamically balances a flow's throughput against the inferred impact on
the network, lowering throughput to protect the network as required.

The FreeBSD operating system's TCP stack currently utilizes the defacto
standard NewReno loss-based CC algorithm, which has known problems
coping with many aspects of modern data networks like lossy or large
bandwidth/delay paths. There is significant and ongoing work both in the
research community and industry to address CC related problems, with a
particular focus on TCP because of its ubiquitous deployment and use.

Swinburne University of Technology's ongoing work with FreeBSD's TCP
stack and congestion control implementation has progressively matured.
This project aims to refine our prototypes and integrate them into FreeBSD.

The project will conclude in January 2011.

The FreeBSD Foundation
You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump
