    Hi Shibby and any other interested developers,

    I was wondering if this new Remy scheme could be introduced into the tomato firmware instead of TCP Vegas?
    Here's the link to code and corresponding papers: http://web.mit.edu/remy/

    Best,

    Looks to be experimental still, and untested in real-world environments.

    This is academical research, only used so far in simulations. That's not meant for use in a production environment.

    As I understand all these TCP revision (Reno, Vegas, Cubic and I bet also Remy) are effective only between hosts (not routers). So unless the packet is generated by the router itself there's no advantage.
    Also: both client and server must support the same revision to take full advantage of it.
