In order to understand application performance across the network, we first have to understand the basic mechanisms. In this case that foundation is built on TCP, and, more specifically, the built-in TCP Performance Options. There are many things that can be done in an application to improve performance. There are also several options from a network perspective, and more still in the operating systems. However, these all rely on the underlying protocol. The Warm Up This blog can serve as a warm up to understanding TCP performance. But, it is still a high-level overview and based on my knowledge and experience. So, for other perspectives I have included some other blog links below in the "Other References" section. These are blogs from some experts in the field and I highly recommend reviewing their content and subscribing to them as well.
