Small-scale UDP Fast Transmission Protocol
The SUFT (Small-scale UDP Fast Transmission) Protocol is an application layer transmission protocol based on UDP and implemented in Golang. It has lower latency than TCP and provides reliable and ordered delivery of a stream of octets under plain congestion control.
The protocol seeks for maximized throughput and minimizes impact of lost packets on throughput. It is only for small/medium-scale communication or some situations where TCP is not applicable.
e, err := suft.NewEndpoint(p *suft.Params) // for server conn := e.Listen() // or e.Accept() // for client conn, err := e.Dial(rAddr string) // your business ... conn.Close() e.Close()
scnt(sender: the count of unique data packets) and dups(sender: retransmission counter)
Lose Rate = dups/(scnt + dups)
Retransmit Rate = dups/scnt
latency, window and traffic speed
Speed = (1000 / latency) * mss * win

go get -u -v github.com/spance/suft/examples/suft-nc
./suft-nc [-l addr:port] [-r addr:port] [-s] [-b 10] [-fr] < [send_file] > [recv_file]
-l: local bind address, e.g. localhost:9090 or :8080 -r: remote address (for client), e.g. 126.96.36.199:9090 or examples.com:8080 -b: max bandwidth of sending in mbps (be careful, see Notes#2) -s: for server -fr: enable fast retransmission (useful for lossy link) -ft: flat traffic (slow down bursty traffic, useful when sender has more bandwidth than receiver)
