NAME

CoDel - Controlled-Delay Active Queue Management algorithm  

SYNOPSIS

tc qdisc ... codel [ limit PACKETS ] [ target TIME ] [ interval TIME ] [ ecn | noecn ]

 

DESCRIPTION

CoDel (pronounced "coddle") is an adaptive "no-knobs" active queue management algorithm (AQM) scheme that was developed to address the shortcomings of RED and its variants. It was developed with the following goals in mind:
 o It should be parameterless.
 o It should keep delays low while permitting bursts of traffic.
 o It should control delay.
 o It should adapt dynamically to changing link rates with no impact on utilization.
 o It should be simple and efficient and should scale from simple to complex routers.

 

ALGORITHM

CoDel comes with three major innovations. Instead of using queue size or queue average, it uses the local minimum queue as a measure of the standing/persistent queue. Second, it uses a single state-tracking variable of the minimum delay to see where it is relative to the standing queue delay. Third, instead of measuring queue size in bytes or packets, it is measured in packet-sojourn time in the queue.

CoDel measures the minimum local queue delay (i.e. standing queue delay) and compares it to the value of the given acceptable queue delay target. As long as the minimum queue delay is less than target or the buffer contains fewer than MTU worth of bytes, packets are not dropped. Codel enters a dropping mode when the minimum queue delay has exceeded target for a time greater than interval. In this mode, packets are dropped at different drop times which is set by a control law. The control law ensures that the packet drops cause a linear change in the throughput. Once the minimum delay goes below target, packets are no longer dropped.

Additional details can be found in the paper cited below.

 

PARAMETERS

 

limit

hard limit on the real queue size. When this limit is reached, incoming packets are dropped. If the value is lowered, packets are dropped so that the new limit is met. Default is 1000 packets.

 

target

is the acceptable minimum standing/persistent queue delay. This minimum delay is identified by tracking the local minimum queue delay that packets experience. Default and recommended value is 5ms.

 

interval

is used to ensure that the measured minimum delay does not become too stale. The minimum delay must be experienced in the last epoch of length interval. It should be set on the order of the worst-case RTT through the bottleneck to give endpoints sufficient time to react. Default value is 100ms.

 

ecn | noecn

can be used to mark packets instead of dropping them. If ecn has been enabled, noecn can be used to turn it off and vice-a-versa. By default, ecn is turned off.
