Ed,

Thanks for the info; however, to fully evaluate the Cray response I would need
to know the parameters of the algorithm: what is the delay, the increment and
the weighting constant for the decrease? How long does it wait for decrease?
In order to set these properaly, it would be helpful for the Cray to know
something about the overall path, such as path delay, estimated flow rate,
packet loss rate, etc. At least on countermotivation for effecting the
quench policy at the IP level is that this information is hard to come by.
