This paper presents the design, implementation and evaluation of Limiting Greedy Connections (LGC), an active mechanism for controlling unresponsive connections and minimizing the degradation in network performance caused by bandwidth-greedy applications. The primary objectives of the LGC mechanism are to limit the impact of greedy connections on a congested node, to keep a loose upper bound on the packet queue occupancy at the intermediate nodes of the network and to minimize packet loss. The LGC mechanism is evaluated for a variety of network topologies, transmitting sources and node queue parameters, using a Java-based active network testbed.
