Low Extra Delay Background Transport (LEDBAT) is an experimental delay-based
congestion control algorithm that seeks to utilize the available bandwidth on an end-to-end path while
limiting the consequent increase in queueing delay on that path. LEDBAT uses changes in one-way
delay measurements to limit congestion that the flow itself induces in the network. LEDBAT is
designed for use by background bulk-transfer applications to be no more aggressive than standard TCP
congestion control (as specified in RFC 5681) and to yield in the presence of competing
flows, thus limiting interference with the network performance of competing flows.
