Question: 28



Host A and B are directly connected with a 100 Mbps link. There is one TCP connection between the two hosts, and Host A is sending to Host B an enor- mous file over this connection. Host A can send its application data into its TCP socket at a rate as high as 120 Mbps but Host B can read out of its TCP receive buffer at a maximum rate of 50 Mbps. Describe the effect of TCP flow control.


The effect of TCP flow control:

If host A faster tahn host B sending data then buffer fill up is start. If the buffer filled completely then send data from host B to host A  untile the remove buffer data and intimate to continue sending data or not. 

Then filled again buffer then repeat the process from host A to host B.
