Technical Summary This document provides a Standards-Track document that formally deprecates the use of ICMP Source Quench messages by all IETF-defined transport protocols. This formally updates RFC 792, RFC 1122, and RFC 1812. Additionally, it recommends against implementation of RFC 1016. Document Quality The document standardises current understanding of how congestion control should be designed and the new language reflects the lack of actual use of this mechanism in deployed network and current best practice. Personnel Gorry Fairhurst is the document shepherd. Wesley Eddy is the responsible AD. RFC Editor Note In Section 1, under the second paragraph, the first bullet has an error. Where it says "over 20 years", it should be "nearly 17 years", or something more accurate based on the date of the reference provided in the sentence.
