The concepts of functional decomposition and selective functionality for the high speed transport protocol have been proposed, along these lines, we implement a Protocol Machine Configurator(PMC) that can configure protocol machine to be adaptive in the given environment. For efficiency and flexibility, the operation in this PMC is divided into steps of Protocol Function(PF) selection and mechanism selection. In the step of PF selection, PFs, which are required for supporting a certain transport protocol service class, are added to Active Function Set(AFS) which is the set of the enabled PFs. In the step of mechanism selection, only one mechanism in Multi-Mechanism Protocol Function(MMPF), which has multiple mechanisms, is selected to satisfy Quality of Service(QoS) requirements such as delay bound and Error Tolerance Level per media type. By dividing the configuration of protocol machine in steps, PMC can determine definitely which PFs to be selected according to transport protocol service class and determine flexibly which mechanism in each MMPF to be selected by QoS limits. Eventually, PMC can adaptively configures the protocol machine per connection with the selected PFs and mechanisms.
