Abstract

We introduce a new parameterization of the many flows asymptotic which allow a better understanding of how current results fit together but also offer more flexibility in the application of this asymptotic regime. As we move into a world were the internet plays an ever increasing role a better understanding of interactions of various rate control protocols are required. As part of this we need to model the queueing dynamics at core routers which leads naturally to the study of the many flows asymptotic. This new scaling allows the easy exploration of different load and buffer sizing scenarios and there effect on packet loss probabilities.
