- probability of dropping a particular flow's packet(s) is roughly proportional to the share of the bandwidth that flow is currently getting
- MaxP is typically set to 0.02, meaning that when the average queue size is halfway between the two thresholds, the gateway drops roughly one out of 50 packets.
- if traffic is bursty, then MinThreshold should be sufficiently large to allow link utilization to be maintained at an acceptably high level
- difference between two thresholds should be larger than the typical increase in the calculated average queue length in one RTT; setting MaxThreshold to twice MinThreshold is reasonable for traffic on today's Internet
