CCID 2, TCP-like Congestion Control, denotes Additive Increase,
Multiplicative Decrease (AIMD) congestion control with behavior
modelled directly on TCP, including congestion window, slow start,
timeouts, and so forth [RFC 2581]. CCID 2 achieves maximum
bandwidth over the long term, consistent with the use of end-to-end
congestion control, but halves its congestion window in response to
each congestion event. This leads to the abrupt rate changes
typical of TCP. Applications should use CCID 2 if they prefer
maximum bandwidth utilization to steadiness of rate. This is often
the case for applications that are not playing their data directly
to the user. For example, a hypothetical application that
transferred files over DCCP, using application-level retransmissions
for lost packets, would prefer CCID 2 to CCID 3. On-line games may
also prefer CCID 2.

CCID 3 denotes TCP-Friendly Rate Control (TFRC), an equation-based
rate-controlled congestion control mechanism. TFRC is designed to
be reasonably fair when competing for bandwidth with TCP-like flows,
where a flow is "reasonably fair" if its sending rate is generally
within a factor of two of the sending rate of a TCP flow under the
same conditions. However, TFRC has a much lower variation of
throughput over time compared with TCP, which makes CCID 3 more
suitable than CCID 2 for applications such streaming media where a
relatively smooth sending rate is of importance.
CCID 3 is further described in:
The TFRC congestion control algorithms were initially described in
RFC 3448.
