recently I've been playing with TCP stack in the kernel, and found an option that could give the same low latency response as in windows (especially if you compare firefox on windows and on linux)
sysctl net.ipv4.tcp_low_latency = 1
now tcp connections seem to be established a bit faster
do you also have some nice tips on tuning the TCP stack?
I add the following tweaks to my linux boxes:
echo 2097136 > /proc/sys/net/core/rmem_max echo 2097136 > /proc/sys/net/core/wmem_max echo 524284 > /proc/sys/net/core/rmem_default echo 524284 > /proc/sys/net/core/wmem_default echo "4096 87380 2097136" > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_rmem echo "4096 65536 2097136" > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_wmem echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_low_latency
Some information about tcp/ip tuning can be found here:
interesting, i might give these a go too. thx for a good hint on what to do today, hooray!
