PIE: Proportional Integral controller Enhanced

Proportional Integral controller Enhanced (PIE) is a scheduler to address the
bufferbloat problem.

We present here a lightweight design, PIE(Proportional Integral controller
Enhanced) that can effectively control the average queueing latency to a target
value. Simulation results, theoretical analysis and Linux testbed results have
shown that PIE can ensure low latency and achieve high link utilization under
various congestion situations. The design does not require per-packet
timestamp, so it incurs very small overhead and is simple enough to implement
in both hardware and software.  "

For more information, please see technical paper about PIE in the IEEE
Conference on High Performance Switching and Routing 2013. A copy of the paper
