When talking about throughput, all sorts of numbers get tossed around. However, it is crucial to clarify what data you are talking about when demonstrating and comparing values. What’s included, and what’s not?
TCP is an old protocol. Its original RFC dates back from 1981. Over time it has been tweaked and tuned in order to keep up with ever increasing demands. In this post I describe how one small tweak can make a big change in performance when using TCP on a 10Gbit Ethernet link.
The first step after installing a new network is often to determine its maximum throughput. At the DOCSIS 3.1 interop that we organized a couple of months ago, several participants stayed after to get the highest throughput on their modems. When new lab equipment is delivered to a customer, it's much the same. In this post, I want to give a bit of back story on the throughput test that we've added to the 2.7.0 ByteBlower release. You'll also get a sneak peek at what is coming in the next release.
