A Flexible Testbed for Datacenter Network Congestion Control Protocol
Abstract— With the prevalence of big data and cloud computing, both the network architecture and
traffic pattern of the datacenter network changed. This brings challenge to the development of
congestion control protocol for the datacenter network, as the traditional tools created for the wide
area network and enterprise network don't meet the requirements of datacenter network well. In this
paper, we will present our design and implementation of a flexible in-lab testbed for the
development of datacenter network congestion control protocol. By using it to evaluate
Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) and Data Center TCP (DCTCP), we demonstrate its
flexibility and capability.
Index Terms— testbed, congestion control protocol, datacenter network.
