Subject [jira] Commented: (AMQ-1143) Need a way to set tcpNoDelay on peer transport TCP network connections
Date Fri, 09 Feb 2007 06:49:04 GMT


David Martín Clavo commented on AMQ-1143:

try the option socket.tcpNoDelay=true, for example:

It has worked for me in a latency test doing synchronous sends, using TCP transport.
You can try and change the PeerTransportFactory source code and add this option if you really
need tcpNoDelay on.

> I really like the peer transport in ActiveMQ.  It seems to be just the kind of setup
we need.  However, we do have low round-trip latency requirements in some applications.  I
was seeing unacceptably bad latencies (~200ms) for synchronous round trips.  I installed Wireshark
and performed network analysis to see what was going on.  It appeared to be a Nagle algorithm
/ TCP ACK delay issue.  Essentially, after the first message request and reply, the next request
message may be delayed while waiting for a delayed ACK from the other broker.  This should
be resolvable by enabling tcpNoDelay.  However, the peer transport URI provides no mechanism
to enable tcpNoDelay.  In fact, I went into the source code and found that the TCP network
connecter specified in the PeerTransportFactory is hard coded to tcp://localhost:0.  Basically,
I need a way to turn on tcpNoDelay in peer transport.
