We examine a traffic overload control scheme which has been designed to meet the demands of a loosely coupled, fully disributed switching architecture. In the architecture considered, each module in the system is identical and consists of a processing element and associated port boards. Each processing element monitors its own congestion and periodically adjusts its own control levels, independently of all other modules. Sim ulation experiments and supplementary analysis are used to study the performance of the distributed control scheme.
