Abstract

See full text

A circuit for use in a data packet transmission system. The circuit generally comprises a buffer and a test circuit. The buffer may be configured to store a plurality of data packets. The test circuit may be configured to (i) monitor a number of the plurality of data packets in the buffer, (ii) permit an additional data packet to the plurality of data packets into the buffer responsive to the number being less than a first threshold, and (iii) discard the additional data packet in accordance with a probabilistic test responsive to the number being greater than the first threshold.
