Understanding Volume Replicator Support for TCP Multi-Connection

To achieve better network throughput, multiple TCP Connections have been introduced with this release of Volume Replicator. TCP does not perform well in Long Fat Networks (LFNs) which has high latency and high-bandwidth. Due to TCP's flow control nature, factors like window size limit, slow recovery from losses, Round-Trip Time (RTT) estimation, and slow start does not allow single TCP connection to saturate the network completely. As a result, optimum network throughput is not achieved when Volume Replicator replicates in the TCP mode.
