Many new network applications demand interprocess communication (IPC) services that are not supported by existing transport protocol mechanisms. Large bandwidth-delay products of high-speed networks also render the existing control mechanisms such as flow and error control less efficient. In particular, new error control schemes that can provide variable degrees of error recovery according to the applications requirements are needed. This paper presents the design, evaluation, and implementation of an application-oriented error control scheme that is aimed at supporting efficient IPC in high-speed networking environments. Our results show that the proposed error control scheme allows effective control of trade-off between the amount of error an application can tolerate and the amount of delay it suffers.
