In this paper we present NIFDY, a network interface that uses admission control to reduce congestion and ensures that packets are received by a processor in the order in which they were sent, even if the underlying network delivers the packets out of order. The basic idea behind NIFDY is that each processor is allowed to have at most one outstanding packet to any other processor unless the destination processor has granted the sender the right to send multiple unacknowledgedpackets.
