If the NACK indicates congestion, then long story short, an approach like that should work.

I tested it in a simple topology as: one consumer, one producer and two path from consumer to producer with different data rate. I unexpectedly saw that the best rout chosen the worse path. Can anyone here tell me why? and is this problem related to forwarding strategy or route calculator?

Each FIB entry has next-hops. Each next-hop has a cost. This cost can be associated either with delay or bandwidth parameters. The current implementation selects the path with the smallest delay (i.e., the path with the smallest delay will have the lowest cost).

If you want to take the link bandwidth into account, you will have to modify the GlobalRoutingHelper:
