Please see part 1 of TCP Congestion Control course series
This page connects you to the iMinds Virtual wall. Check the side image on how you are connected to the Virtual Wall.
We are connected over IPv6 to the iMinds Virtual wall. You are not required to do so when accessing this page.
The Virtual Wall is hosted at and operated by iMinds iLab.t. The hardware which is visible through the Aggregate Manager consists of 110x dual CPU nodes (2x 6 cores), 24 GB RAM, 1x harddisk 250GB, Intel Xeon E5645 (2.40GHz), interconnected with a Force 10 C300 switch (multiple gigabit interfaces per node). 

Learning outcomes

This part uses a simple TCP congestion control exercise to train you on how you can run tasks on testbeds with real hardware resources.

Learning activities

During this simple task a TCP client (node0) connects to a TCP server (node1) and transmits data for 30 seconds. During this connection, in the client node, various TCP parameters are recorded in a file called “tcpout“
