Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-8069) Enable TCP_NODELAY by default for IPC
Date Thu, 16 Feb 2012 00:25:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8069?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13209012#comment-13209012

Todd Lipcon commented on HADOOP-8069:

Hi Daryn. Your above descriptions sound right, except the nagle delay on Linux is 40ms rather
than 200 (I think the dack delay is 200 though like you said).
I hacked up something like my #4 yesterday morning but didn't really like the way I did it
so I threw it away. I'll try again soon :)

> I think we should switch the default for the IPC client and server NODELAY options to
true. As wikipedia says:

> In general, since Nagle's algorithm is only a defense against careless applications,
it will not benefit a carefully written application that takes proper care of buffering; the
algorithm has either no effect, or negative effect on the application.

> Since our IPC layer is well contained and does its own buffering, we shouldn't be careless.
