Subject: Re: TCP cubic (and bic) initial slow start way too slow?

Oops. I thought Bill was using 2.6.20 instead of 2.6.22 which should contain 
our latest update.

Regarding slow start behavior, the latest version should not change though. 
I think it would be ok to change the slow start of bic and cubic to the 
default slow start. But what we observed is that when BDP is large, 
increasing cwnd by two times is really an overkill. consider increasing from 
1024 into 2048 packets..maybe the target is somewhere between them. We have 
potentially a large number of packets flushed into the network. That was the 
original motivation to change slow start from the default into a more gentle 
version. But I see the point that Bill is raising. We are working on 
improving this behavior in our lab. We will get back to this topic in a 
couple of weeks after we finish our testing and produce a patch.
