Understand TCP for Computer Networks

Jane Smith

The course will explain

  • how a TCP session is started and terminated
  • how data is transferred
    • determine segment size
    • ramp up throughput
    • acknowledge all the packets
  • what impacts TCP performance
  • relevant things required for the analysis
  • typical issues of TCP connections
    • wrong MSS
    • adjusted MSS
    • no window scaling
    • no SACK

The course will use trace files to explain the things as you see them in real world and the files are available for download.

Understanding TCP is crucial as the majority of data is transferred with TCP. The performance of the transmission is impacted by many TCP details and performance analysis and optimization requires a good background on TCP. Finding and fixing issues will also not be possible without understanding the protocol. After this course you will be able to find faults, check options and understand the performance.

Great course, I've only went through it once. I will need to go over it a couple more times to fully absorb everything. So far it's easy to understand and very informative. Thank you so much. I really enjoy this course. - Kim Him
