Flow control in TCP, Computer Networking

Q. Flow control in TCP?

  • The amount of data a source is able to send before receiving an ACK from the destination
  • Whether to send 1 byte of data as well as wait for ACK or send all the bytes and wait for the ACK for the complete message?
  • TCP gives a resolution in between
  • Sliding window protocol

- Byte oriented

If no window a sender is able to send all bytes without regarding the condition of the receiver

- If data are consumed too gradually then receiver buffer becomes full - drop the packet (retransmit)

- The sender should adjust itself to the number of the free locations in the receiver buffer

Receiver window
