I have 2 servers set up with about 80ms latency between them. Both are centos 6 and run a java app that transfers data from on location to another. Both are on 1gbps connections.
I have been trying different sysctl settings and different send & receive buffer settings in java but no matter what I set them to, I cannot get the tcp window size to go above 130048 in the tcp dumps. This equates to roughly 13mbps which is the actual throughput I am getting.
Current sysctl settings are:
net.core.wmem_max = 16777216 net.core.rmem_max = 16777216 net.core.wmem_default = 2400000 net.core.rmem_default = 2400000 net.ipv4.tcp_wmem = 4096 65536 16777216 net.ipv4.tcp_rmem = 4096 87380 16777216
