A Flexible Testbed for Datacenter Network Congestion Control Protocol

Xin Yue, Xing Li

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.
