Impact

In some cases, the congestion window can be too large for the path and cause packet losses if it is later fully utilized.

Conditions

When the application is not generating enough data, or any streams with data are stream flow control limited.

Workaround

None

Fix Information

Correctly check for data limitations before increasing congestion window.
