An asynchronous, distributed algorithm is presented that determines the optimal transmission rate allocation in computer networks with virtual circuit routing. The flow control problem is formulated as a gradient hill-climbing algorithm. It is distributed, since the entry node for each virtual circuit iteratively computes the rate allocation for that virtual circuit. The entry node communicates
