I had the impression that CUBIC was not a standards-track RFC, and not the recommendation of the IETF tcpimpl group, etc. I think we should tread very carefully in moving beyond IETF recommendations. Specifically I don't see CUBIC at http://datatracker.ietf.org/wg/tcpm/ A while ago I looked at Linux TCP, I think BIC, and it seemed that it was exceeding the amount of transmission allowed by the current standards. But my memory of this is too fuzzy to really go on. My point is that Linux setting CUBIC to be the default is not adequate justification. Also, I have a pending fix to SACK, that I posted long ago, that I will try to get in. (By fix I mean a code bug, where after the change we'll follow the congestion control specs more closely.) But I will need to page this in again. Have you compared CUBIC and our default?
