TransferDelay

Specify use of TCP segment transfer algorithm

Description

You can configure TransferDelay to on or off. If TransferDelay is on, small segments of outstanding data are collected and sent in a single packet when acknowledgment (ACK) arrives from the server. If TransferDelay is off, data is sent immediately to the network.

If a network is slow, you can improve its performance by configuring TransferDelay to on. However, on a fast network acknowledgments arrive quickly and there is negligible difference between configuring TransferDelay to on or off.

Note that the segment transfer algorithm used by TransferDelay is Nagle's algorithm.
