Abstract:This thesis develops a method for identifying the speed limiting factor of a TCP flow. Five factors are considered: the receive window, the send buffer, the network and two kinds of application layer factors. Criteria for recognizing each factor based on TCP header information are put forward. These criteria result in percentages that can be used as a measure of the impact of each of the factors on a flow. As we will see, different limitation percentages need a different interpretation, which is discussed at the end of this report.
