TCP and Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) provide
notification of duplicate segment receipt through Duplicate Selective
Acknowledgement (DSACKs) and Duplicate Transmission Sequence Number
(TSN) notification, respectively.  This document presents conservative
methods of using this information to identify unnecessary
retransmissions for various applications.

This document is a product of the Transport Area Working Group Working
Group of the IETF.
