    What enables Tcp_Vegas in the Kernel?

    I would like to know if someone could tell me in the tcp.c file which function/line of code that enables the congestion avoidance algorithm.

    I believe that this function/line of code enables the congestion avoidance algorithm, specifically the tcp_reno.

    I ask because I want to enable the tcp_vegas in the Kernel. I assume if that I put tcp_vegas such like this:

    I would enable tcp_vegas congestion avoidance algorithm in the tcp_vegas.c file, right?

    The tcp.c file I am referring to is the one that you can download from the Kernel website. I have attached it as well

    You know, there is an (extremely active) kernel mailing list, and there is a very very good chance someone there knows the answer to this question.

    The linux-kernel mailing list FAQ

    Just don't get snippy with anyone there They will run you out of town but quick.
    C programming resources:
    GNU C Function and Macro Index -- glibc reference manual
    The C Book -- nice online learner guide
    Current ISO draft standard
    CCAN -- new CPAN like open source library repository
    3 (different) GNU debugger tutorials: #1 -- #2 -- #3
