This came through as this week’s techmail, although I’m not sure why.. this was originally posted back in June, but since that was before I started linking to the tips I figured I’d note it here anyways. Tuning the Linux kernel for more aggressive network throughput talks about changing some Linux kernel options via sysctl(…)
