Receive Buffer Dynamics and OS Scheduling


White, Jerome S. (2008) Receive Buffer Dynamics and OS Scheduling. Master's thesis, California Institute of Technology. doi:10.7907/ZTYH-6B13.


We perform an empirical study of the effects receive-side resource sharing has on a TCP transaction. Our variable of focus is the buffer used to deliver packets to the application. Specifically, our interest lies with how its size affects throughput amidst background load.
