Ballot Text

Technical Summary

   This document describes a possible congestion control mechanism for
   acknowledgement traffic (ACKs) in TCP.  The document specifies an
   end-to-end acknowledgement congestion control mechanism for TCP that
   uses participation from both TCP hosts, the TCP data sender and the
   TCP data receiver.

   This acknowledgement congestion control mechanism is being specified
   for further evaluation by the network community.

RFC Editor Note

   The IESG thinks that this work is related to IETF work done in WG
   TCPM, but this does not prevent publishing.


      The content of this RFC was at one time considered by the IETF,
      and therefore it may resemble a current IETF work in progress or a
      published IETF work.  This RFC is not a candidate for any level of
      Internet Standard.  The IETF disclaims any knowledge of the
      fitness of this RFC for any purpose and in particular notes that
      the decision to publish is not based on IETF review for such
      things as security, congestion control, or inappropriate
      interaction with deployed protocols.  The RFC Editor has chosen to
      publish this document at its discretion.  Readers of this RFC
      should exercise caution in evaluating its value for implementation
      and deployment.  See RFC 3932 for more information.
