      Title: TCP Congestion Control
      Author(s): M. Allman, V. Paxson, W. Stevens
      Status: Proposed Standard
      Date: April 1999
      Mailbox: mallman@..., vern@...,

      his document defines TCP's four intertwined congestion control
      algorithms: slow start, congestion avoidance, fast retransmit, and
      fast recovery. In addition, the document specifies how TCP should
      begin transmission after a relatively long idle period, as well as
      discussing various acknowledgment generation methods.

      This document is a product of the TCP Implementation Working Group of
      the IETF.

      This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.

      This document specifies an Internet standards track protocol for
      the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions
      for improvements. Please refer to the current edition of the
      "Internet Official Protocol Standards" (STD 1) for the
      standardization state and status of this protocol. Distribution
      of this memo is unlimited.

      Requests to be added to or deleted from the IETF distribution list
      should be sent to IETF-REQUEST@.... Requests to be
