Better networking with SCTP
The Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) is a reliable transport protocol that provides stable, ordered delivery of data between two endpoints (much like TCP) and also preserves data message boundaries (like UDP). However, unlike TCP and UDP, SCTP offers such advantages as multi-homing and multi-streaming capabilities, both of which increase availability. In this article, get to know the key features of SCTP in the Linux® 2.6 kernel and take a look at the server and client source code that shows the protocol's ability to deliver multi-streaming.
