Bufferbloat: Are We There Yet? - Stephen Hemminger, Vyatta

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Bufferbloat is the name (coined by Jim Gettys) to describe excessive latency in computer networks caused by buffering. Through the collaborative effort of researchers, developers, and users many causes of this problem have been eliminated.

The demonstrations use the analogy of fluid dynamics to explain CoDel, PIE, and other smart queuing mechanisms.
