This memo makes the case for interdependent TCP control blocks, where part of the TCP state is shared among similar concurrent connections, or across similar connection instances. TCP state includes a combination of parameters, such as connection state, current round-trip time estimates, congestion control information, and process information. This memo provides information for the Internet community. This memo does not specify an Internet standard of any kind.

For the definition of Status, see RFC 2026.

For the definition of Stream, see RFC 8729.
