On Parameter Tuning of Data Transfer Protocol GridFTP in Wide-Area Grid Computing

Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) In recent years, a wide-area Grid computing has got a lot of attention. In the wide-area Grid computing, by connecting computational resources distributed geographically via networks, the computational resources can be used efficiently and large-scale scientific and engineering computation become possible. In the wide-area Grid computing, a data transfer protocol called GridFTP is used for large file transfer. GridFTP has the following mechanisms for solving problems of the existing TCP. First, for accelerating the start-up in TCP's slow start phase and achieving high throughput in TCP's congestion avoidance phase, multiple TCP connections can be established in parallel. Second, according to the bandwidth-delay product of a network, the TCP socket buffer size can be adjusted between GridFTP server and client. However, in the literature, sufficient investigation has been performed neither on the optimal number of TCP connections, nor the optimal configuration of the TCP socket buffer size. Therefore, in this paper, we quantitatively investigate the optimal parameter configuration of GridFTP, in particular, in terms of the number of TCP connections and the TCP socket buffer size.
