thanks in advance!
I am doing my test with SACK on FreeBSD 7. When the sender receives ACKs with sack information, even if there are multiple gaps in the sack information, after 3 duplicate ACKs, the sender only retransmit 1 packet during that RTT.
there are something may need to be set properly :
net.inet.sack.maxholes(default value :128)
but i found no instructions on how to set them, so i just keep their default values. is the performance related to these parameters, how can i set them... ? if not, who knows what would be the problem...
