This document describes PGMCC, a single rate multicast
congestion control scheme which is TCP-friendly and achieves
scalability, stability and fast response to variations in
network conditions. PGMCC is suitable for both non-reliable
and reliable data transfers. It is mainly designed for NAK-
based multicast protocols, and uses a window-based, TCP-like
control loop using positive ACKs between one representative of
the receiver group (the ACKER) and the sender. The ACKER is
selected dynamically and may change over time.
PGMCC is made of two components: a window-based control loop,
which closely mimics TCP behaviour, and a fast and low-
overhead procedure to select (and track changes of) the ACKER.
The scheme is robust to measurement errors, and supports fast
response to changes in the receiver set and/or network

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
