ABSTRACT
TCP Incast plagues scalable cluster-based storage built atop
standard TCP/IP-over-Ethernet, often resulting in much
lower client read bandwidth than can be provided by the
available network links. This paper reviews the Incast prob-
lem and discusses potential application-level approaches to
avoiding it.
