backoff

backoff

(networking)
A host which has experienced a collision on a network waits for a amount of time before attempting to retransmit. A random backoff minimises the probability that the same nodes will collide again, even if they are using the same backoff algorithm. Increasing the backoff period after each collision also helps to prevent repeated collisions, especially when the network is heavily loaded.

An example algorithm is binary exponential backoff.

Although little consensus can be found in literature as to the exact meaning of strategic planning capability (Anderson and Paine 1975; Bryson and Roering 1988; Eadie and Steinbacher 1985; Wechsler and Backoff 1987), the concept is of utmost importance because it stresses the need to prepare for the strategic planning process should the decision be made to use this tool for strategy formulation.
Of particular interest in recent years have been scalable synchronization algorithms, which employ backoff or distributed data structures to minimize contention [Anderson 1990; Graunke and Thakkar 1990; Hensgen et al.
Has all the shots to win but still needs to prove he learned from his final-round backoff at the PGA last year.
These differences, more fully discussed in Nutt and Backoff (1993a), suggest that private sector approaches to strategic leadership and strategic management must be re-thought before being applied in a public organization.

16] discussed three key mechanisms that can be utilized in the design of IBFD MAC protocols: shared random backoff, header snooping, and collision avoidance with RTS/CTS exchange.
Specifically, a biased backoff scheme is introduced during the route discovery phase to find a robust guide path, which can provide more cooperative forwarding opportunities.
procedure is repeated MSH_SPONSOR_ATTEMPTS times using a random backoff interval between successive attempts.
Aunque [18], [19] proponen un estimador mas exacto que los usados tipicamente, todavia sufre de algunas dificultades como la imprecision en la consideracion del tiempo de Backoff, la suposicion de que el rango de interferencia y el rango de percepcion de portadora son iguales, la imprecision al considerar el tiempo de disponibilidad total como el producto de los tiempos de disponibilidad locales, etc.
If it finds the channel busy, it chooses a backoff period and waits.
El AIFS corresponde al tiempo que el medio de transmision debe estar libre antes que empiece a contar regresivamente un contador llamado Backoff.
Even with two half-time changes, Dynamo were unconvincing and Anderson was agonisingly close to netting his first United goal with a shot which bounced backoff a postwithOlexandr Shovkovskiy beaten.
