Subject: Document Action: 'Early Retransmit for TCP and SCTP' to Experimental RFC
The IESG has approved the following document:
- 'Early Retransmit for TCP and SCTP '
<draft-ietf-tcpm-early-rexmt-04.txt> as an Experimental RFC
This document is the product of the TCP Maintenance and Minor Extensions Working Group.
The IESG contact persons are Lars Eggert and Magnus Westerlund.
A URL of this Internet-Draft is:
This document proposes a new mechanism for TCP and SCTP that can be
used to recover lost segments when a connection's congestion window
is small. This allows the transport to use fast retransmit to recover
losses that would otherwise require a lengthy retransmission timeout.
There is limited implementation experience. There are no MIBs or
other special items requiring expert review.
Wesley Eddy (Wesley.M.Eddy@nasa.gov) is the document shepherd.
Lars Eggert (firstname.lastname@example.org) reviewed it for the IESG.
