Suffering from BufferBloat ?

I picked up on this story from AI4QR‘s Illruminations Blog, and expect to follow up on some of the leads presented. The actual story comes Jim Gettys investigation of congestion issues on networks that should be able to perform better than they do. Jim has posted several threads about this on his blog.

  1. excessive buffering in a network path
  2. ? what is going on ?
  3. saturated links & network neutrality
    and more (each with loads of good comments)
sample results

from DSL Report's SmokePing testing

OK, I’ll be following this – and reading more.
Also passing this around among the various network experts that i know…
Most of them are saying, Hmmm – always wondered why . . . . . . . .
