I wonder if it's possible to know how many retransmissions have been done by the SCTP stack when sending/receiving message (ideally by association) ? It could be a useful measure of network quality with [distant] peers.
I am using kernel SCTP...
Socket option SCTP_GET_ASSOC_STATS will give you number of chunks that have been re-transmitted during the lifetime of the association.
Can anybody share his/her knowledge about SCTP protocol and hands-on experience as well ?
Out of three prominent advance transport protocols (TCP, UDP and SCTP) which is the best to use and why should i use that protocol ?
What reasoning could be behind not using the TCP/SCTP for GTPv2 protocol ?
WHY MME USES UDP AS TRANSPORT PROTOCOL OVER SCTP TOWARDS SGW
