Performance Analysis of Active Queue Management Schemes for IP Network
Active Queue Management schemes have evolved over time and continue to do so. In this paper, we present a comprehensive survey of AQM schemes for IP network. Its purpose is to identify the basic approaches that have been proposed and classify them according to the design goals and performance issues of AQM schemes. The results from several performance evaluation such as the link utilization, the average delay, and the loss rates have been provided. In particular, simulation-based comparisons of AQM schemes help to understand how they differ from in terms of fairness, global synchronization, performance guarantee, complexity and scalability.
