Abstract

See full text

Traffic shaping is combined with per-flow fairness in routing devices operating on virtual circuit (VC) networks. In the case of a backlogged VC, flows are temporarily suppressed notwithstanding their transmission priority. This suppression, however, is implemented in a manner that respects the priority level associated with the VC. In other words, although traffic is limited to backlogged VCs in order to allow those lines to clear, this limitation occurs in a manner consistent with weighting or other per-flow fairness criteria.
