The congestion notification system of some embodiments sends congestion notification messages from lower layer (e.g., closer to a network) components to higher layer (e.g., closer to a packet sender) components. When the higher layer components receive the congestion notification messages, the higher layer components reduce the sending rate of packets (in some cases the rate is reduced to zero) to allow the lower layer components to lower congestion (i.e., create more space in their queues by sending more data packets along the series of components).
