Due to the dramatic price drop of memory network devices are configured with much larger buffer sizes than before in order to prevent packet drop. This undermines the assumptions of the TCP congestion avoidance algorithm which depends on packet loss in order to detect and prevent network congestion. We investigate the effects of this buffer bloat phenomenon on throughput and latency. Our simulations show that increasing buffer sizes reduces throughput slightly, but sharply increases latency… CONTINUE READING
