An experimental study was conducted using a network simulator to investigate the performance of packet communication networks as a function of: the network resource capacities (channels, buffers), the network load (number of virtual channels, virtual channel loads), protocols (flow control, congestion control, routing), and protocol parameters (virtual channel window size, input buffer limits). Performance characteristics are shown and the design of input buffer limits for network congestion control, virtual channel window size, and nodal buffer capacity addressed. Network design strategies for the control of load fluctuations are proposed and discussed.
