### Computing TCP's RTT and timeout values

Suppose that TCP's current estimated values for the round trip time (*estimatedRTT*) and
deviation in the RTT (*DevRTT*) are
350 msec and 40 msec, respectively (see Section 3.5.3 for a discussion of these variables).
Suppose that the next three measured values of the RTT are 270 msec, 280 msec, and 230 msec respectively.

Compute TCP's new value of

*DevRTT, estimatedRTT,*and the TCP timeout value after each of these three measured RTT values is obtained. Use the values of α = 0.125, and β = 0.25. Round your answers to two decimal places after leading zeros.

### Question List

1. What is the estimatedRTT after the first RTT?

2. What is the RTT Deviation for the the first RTT?

3. What is the TCP timeout for the first RTT?

4. What is the estimatedRTT after the second RTT?

5. What is the RTT Deviation for the the second RTT?

6. What is the TCP timeout for the second RTT?

7. What is the estimatedRTT after the third RTT?

8. What is the RTT Deviation for the the third RTT?

9. What is the TCP timeout for the third RTT?

### Solution

DevRTT is calculated with the following equation: (1-beta)*DevRTT + beta * |estimatedRTT - sampleRTT|

estimatedRTT is calculated with the following equation: (1-alpha)*estimatedRTT + alpha*sampleRTT

TCP timeout is calculated with the following equation: estimatedRTT + (4*DevRTT)

1. The estimatedRTT for RTT1 is 340

2. The DevRTT for RTT1 is 50

3. The timeout for RTT1 is 540

4. The estimatedRTT for RTT2 is 332.5

5. The DevRTT for RTT2 is 52.5

6. The timeout for RTT2 is 542.5

7. The estimatedRTT for RTT3 is 319.69

8. The DevRTT for RTT3 is 65

9. The timeout for RTT3 is 579.69
