Delay_ack setting [ms]

Hi,

To estimate the gain we may achieve after switching off Delayed Acknowledge, I like to know how long the System waits until it sends the Delayed Acknowledge.
UCX (TCP/IP) V4.2-21

Thanks

Wim, thanks for the thread! The figure 200ms is mentionned, but I think that is the Win32 figure.

I have seen up to now:
Linux 2: 15-20ms
Solaris: 50ms
Win32: 200ms
UCX: ?

Re: Delay_ack setting [ms]

Did some tcptrace in ucx 4.2 (for ftp sessions): it report delayed acks after received packages of about 20 100/sec or 200 ms against 0 when nodelay ack is active.

Did the same on tcp 5.3. The delay wasn't given. Changed functionality ?

Noticed that in ucx and tcp the number of delayed acks are shown. I took a global trace of all traffic on 5.3 until I saw an increase in the counter. Than I searched for the delayed ack. Found it and the difference is 200 ms too. But not 100% sure that it is caused by delayed ack.

Re: Delay_ack setting [ms]

Wim, Thanks a lot. Seen your 200ms result I expect a significant improvement during our DICOM-transfer, when delayed acknowledge is disabled.
This was my first experience with the successor of Ask the Wizzard and it makes me a fan.
