Title: The Delta-t transport protocol: Features and experience useful for high performance networks

Abstract

With the advent of new high performance networks and distributed systems there is renewed interest in transport protocol designs that can support both request/response and stream styles of communication. Delta-t is a transport protocol designed to meet such goals. Delta-t's main contribution is in the area of connection management, where it achieves hazard free connection management without explicit packet exchanges. This paper reviews Delta-t's features, connection management more generally, and outlines some implementation lessons useful for high performance networks. 26 refs.
