Impact of resequencing buffer distribution on packet reordering
Packet reordering in Internet has become an unavoidable phenomenon wherein packets get displaced during transmission resulting in out of order packets at the destination. Resequencing buffers are used at the end nodes to recover from packet reordering. This thesis presents analytical estimation methods for "Reorder Density" (RD) and "Reorder Buffer occupancy Density" (RBD) that are metrics of packet reordering, of packet sequences as they traverse through resequencing nodes with limited buffers. During the analysis, a "Lowest First Resequencing Algorithm" is defined and used in individual nodes ...
