They are labelled as "FlowNet," "PritGred" "FifoMax," "RndMax," and "BiRnd" in short, respectively.
Therefore, in this case, the FlowNet, PritGred, FifoMax, and RndMax methods all can achieve the optimal performance.
Among all of the traffic scheduling algorithms, FlowNet outperforms the others.
Among all of the traffic scheduling algorithms, FlowNet outperforms the others, and PritGred is the second best one.
