Is reliable delivery required by all applications?
Does UDP provide segmentation/reassembly services?
What is the purpose of the Destination Port field in the UDP packet header?
It enables the receiving host to properly route incoming packets to the appropriate Session Layer protocol.
Does UDP provide notification of dropped packets?
Notification is optional and is supported only in certain situations.
Is the segmentation process controlled by TCP or the ULP?
TCP performs segmentation and controls the process.
Why is the TCP flow-control mechanism called a sliding window?
Because the advertised receive buffer size is allowed to fluctuate dynamically.
What is the formula for calculating the bandwidth-delay product?
Bandwidth * Round-Trip Time (RTT)
Does TCP guarantee in-order delivery?
What is the purpose of the TCP ISN?
To synchronize the data byte counter in the responding host's TCB with the data byte counter in the initiating host's TCB.
Is the segmentation process controlled by FC-2 or the ULP?
FC-2 performs segmentation, but the ULP controls the process.
Which two fields in the PLOGI ELS facilitate negotiation of end-to-end delivery mechanisms in modern FC-SANs?
The Common Service Parameters field and the Class 3 Service Parameters field.
How is the missing frame error recovery behavior of an FC node determined?
The Exchange Error Policy is specified by the Exchange originator on a per-Exchange basis via the Abort Sequence Condition bits of the F_CTL field of the FC header of the first frame of each new Exchange.
After completing PLOGI with the switch, what does each initiator N_Port do?
Each initiator N_Port queries the FCNS and then performs PLOGI with each target N_Port discovered via the FCNS.
