Talk:Random early detection
|WikiProject Computing / Networking||(Rated Start-class, Low-importance)|
RED is considered more fair than tail drop. The more a host transmits, the more likely it is that its packets are dropped. Early detection helps avoid global synchronization.
Why is this true? Isn't the drop probability the same for all flows? --Nels Beckman 01:21, 1 March 2007 (UTC)
