Enlarging networking buffers
In the hope of increasing networking performance, I’ve set the following
# Increase send/receive buffer maximums from 256KB to 16MB. # FreeBSD 7.x and later will auto-tune the size, but only up to the max. net.inet.tcp.sendbuf_max=16777216 net.inet.tcp.recvbuf_max=16777216 # Double send/receive TCP datagram memory allocation. This defines the # amount of memory taken up by default *per socket*. net.inet.tcp.sendspace=65536 net.inet.tcp.recvspace=131072 # Enlarge buffers for BPF device. sysctl net.bpf.bufsize=65536 sysctl net.bpf.maxbufsize=524288
