Datagram Congestion Control Protocol (DCCP)

by David Höppner for illumos

DCCP is a transport protocol suited among other things for media streaming. RFC 6012 recommends it also as a network logging protocol for (newer) syslog implementations. The experience gained in implementing DCCP will lay the groundwork for later work on the plugable congestion control mechanism outlined in PSARC/2009/629.
