- This becomes: "TCP_NODELAY, TCP_CORK, TCP_NOPUSH, etc (was: dkim-milter signing terribly slow...)"
- TCP_NODELAY: Disable Nagle's algorithm (coalescing of small packets until an ACK is received or a retransmission triggered). See the Linux APIs page for interactions with TCP_CORK on that platform.
TCP auto-tuning on Linux

TCP auto-tuning on FreeBSD
- Finally introduced in [FreeBSD 7.2] by Andre Oppermann:
With TCP send buffer auto scaling and the default values below it supports 20Mbit/s at 100ms and 10Mbit/s at 200ms. Both read and write buffer are auto-sized.
