Key principles/being a good network citizen[edit]

Exponential backoff is a key networking principle.

This article (with some expansion) would be a good candidate for a list of "Internet patterns", designed for systems that are connected to networks. Wikip rhyre (talk) 14:21, 15 July 2009 (UTC)

An important element of exponential back-off is that it is coupled with a careful reverse process that allows traffic volume to resume. As a general principle exponential back-off should be coupled with a linear ramp-up. This guarantees a stable environment. Without it, traffic volumes can oscillate, potentially becoming unstable, in complex communication environments (real world). — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:55, 18 August 2011 (UTC)
