I'm afraid I don't understand exactly what you want :?. For example, do you want to increase server performance, or decrease the amount of traffic, or something else? Could you please elaborate?
There are 10 types of people in this world, those who understand binary and those who don't.

Sorry for the inconvenience!
Basically I am looking for managing inbound and outbound traffic targetted towards the speed as well as the security.
Aim is to:
1): Find the tweaks (Something like MTU settings or any other(HW/SW)to fetch maximum from the ISP ).
2): Controlling the bandwidth (Server for a LAN).
Means server performance at full throttles.

hi,

you can not change MTU as you like but you can shape your traffic with different queuing mechanism.

Read more in Linux Advanced Routing & Traffic Control ( http://lartc.org/ )

You can't really do anything about 1), your isp/carrier has full control over that.
As for 2), check zoli's link :)

Hello!
Thanks zoli and all for Linux advanced routing and Traffic control link(cool).
About MTU settings...I remember on wint I read about registry tweaks similarly while exploring on Linux I opened my modem configuration in /etc/mymodem/my_device and I found the following line (default).
Code: Select all
pppd $PORT 115200 debug usepeerdns defaultroute connect '/usr/sbin/chat -v "" at+crm=1 OK "atdt#777" CONNECT' disconnect '/sbin/rdisconnect' mtu 400


I changed mtu to 1500 and I found some improvement.

Code: Select all
pppd $PORT 115200 debug usepeerdns defaultroute connect '/usr/sbin/chat -v "" at+crm=1 OK "atdt#777" CONNECT' disconnect '/sbin/rdisconnect' mtu 1500
