Abstract

This document outlines actions a TCP sender can take after determining that a spurious fast retransmission has been sent due to packet reordering. The document outlines the method a TCP connection can use to 'undo' needless changes made to the congestion control state. In addition, several methods to help prevent future fast retransmits are outlined.
