Actually this is 16K (the maximum size of a TLS record), so 16K
buckets are passed to the core output filter (which itself bufferizes
buckets lower than THRESHOLD_MIN_WRITE=4K, up to
THRESHOLD_MAX_BUFFER=64K before sending.

Without SSL, sending is done up to the size of the mmapp()ed file
still, which may make a difference.

Maybe you could try to play with
the SSL case (e.g. MIN=4M and MAX=16M), but that'd still cost some
transient to heap buckets (copies) which don't happen in the non-SSL
