In this paper we develop an open multiclass queuing network model to describe the behavior of short-lived TCP connections sharing a common IP network. The queuing network model is paired with a simple model of the IP network, and the two models are solved through an iterative procedure. The combined models need as inputs only the primitive network parameters, and they produce estimates of the packet loss probability, the round trip time, the TCP connection throughput, and of the average TCP connection completion time (that is, of the average time necessary to transfer a file with given size over a TCP connection). We derive models for both TCP-Tahoe and TCP-NewReno. The Tahoe model is presented in detail, while the NewReno model is presented describing differences with respect to Tahoe. Results are shown for both models. The analytical performance predictions are validated against detailed simulation experiments in realistic networking scenarios, proving that the proposed modeling approach is accurate.
