    • A Multicast Flow Control Protocol 

      Hayden, Mark; Xiao, Zhen (Cornell University, 1999-04)
      This paper describes the goals, approach, implementation, and performance of Mflow, a multicast flow control protocol. Our work focuses on the issues that arise from the increase in acknowledgments that occur as the size ...
    • Optimizing Buffer Management for Reliable Multicast 

      Xiao, Zhen; Birman, Ken (Cornell University, 2000-10-02)
      Reliable multicast delivery requires that a multicast message be received by all members in a group. Hence certain or all members need to buffer messages for possible retransmissions. Designing an efficient buffer ...
    • A Randomized Error Recovery Algorithm for Reliable Multicast 

      Xiao, Zhen; Birman, Ken (Cornell University, 2000-10-02)
      An efficient error recovery algorithm is essential for reliable multicast in large groups. Tree-based protocols (RMTP, TMTP, LBRRM) group receivers into local regions and select a repair server for performing error recovery ...
    • Scalability of Two Reliable Multicast Protocols 

      Ozkasap, Oznur; Xiao, Zhen; Birman, Kenneth P. (Cornell University, 1999-05)
      Growing demand for multicast commun-ication in large network settings has focused attention on the scalability of reliable multicast protocols. Our paper uses both simulation tools and experiments to compare two scalable ...
