The flow of papers proposing new schemes to cope with congestion in networks continues unabated. In particular as the deployment of ATM networks advances effective congestion control is required to ensure that these networks can effectively provide the wide range of services that they promise. This paper attempts to evaluate whether recently proposed algorithms are likely to be useful in practice using performance simulation and modeling methods. However the performance is very sensitive to the flow control parameters and identifying an appropriate set of parameters is difficult since it depends heavily on the traffic conditions. The aim of this paper described is to broaden the context within which ATM performance is considered, and outline ongoing work in performance evaluation of ATM networks. This paper presents the complete picture for evaluating the properties of congestion control mechanisms including fairness, overhead, data loss and network utilization are described. It is particularly aimed at estimating the effects of recent congestion control schemes for ATM networks.
