The congestion problem at the router buffer leads to serious consequences on network performance. Active Queue Management (AQM) has been developed to react to any possible congestion at the router buffer at an early stage. The limitation of the existing fuzzy-based AQM is the utilization of indicators that do not address all the performance criteria and quality of services required. In this paper, a new method for active queue management is proposed based on using the fuzzy logic and multiple performance indicators that are extracted from the network performance metrics. These indicators are queue length, delta queue and expected loss. The simulation of the proposed method show that in high traffic load, the proposed method preserves packet loss, drop packet only when it is necessary and produce a satisfactory delay that outperformed the state-of-the-art AQM methods.
