Abstract

We propose a buffer management mechanism, called V-WFQ (Virtual Weighted Fair Queueing), for achieving approximately fair bandwidth allocation with a small hardware amount in high-speed networks. The basic process for allocating bandwidth fairly uses selective packet dropping to compare the measured input rate of the flow with an estimated fair bandwidth share. Though V-WFQ is a hardware-efficient FIFO-based algorithm, it can achieve almost ideal fairness in bandwidth allocation. Simulation results show that V-WFQ achieves a good balance between fairness and link utilization under various simulation conditions.
