Abstract

It has been observed that the TCP-RED system may exhibit instability and oscillatory behavior. Control methods proposed in the past have been based on the analytical models that rely on statistical measurements of network parameters. In this paper, we apply the detrended fluctuation analysis (DFA) method to analyze stability of the TCP-RED system. The DFA has been used for detecting long-range correlations in seemingly nonstationary noisy signals. The key indicator emanating from DFA is known as the scaling exponent. By examining the variations of the DFA scaling exponent when varying system parameters, we quantify the stability of the TCP-RED system in terms of system's characteristics.
