:) Well, search for the sprite project at stanford. Read some of their
papers, they have implemented some burst transfer protocol for their
distributed file system implementation.

another example is in petsc. have a look at the petsc papers. that's a
debian package which is easy to find.

now i'm looking at tanenbaum if he mentions it. Hmm have a look at tanenbaum
page 434 communication in distributed systems, remote procedure call
and read "blast protocol" in acknowledgements. search that phrase
in researchindex.com and you'll find a lot of great papers about it I'm
sure!! that's 10.3.5 in 1992 edition of Modern Operating Systems, Tanenbaum.
