I’ve noticed I can change the network buffer size in my runtime settings. Why would I want to do this? Is there some situation where it would make sense to do this on the client side?
Re: Network buffer
To avoid buffer under and overruns and/or reduce or increase the number of roundtrips. Where might it make most sense? Just a couple situations of many:
1) If increasing the buffer size will reduce the number of message exchanges (reduce network traffic), then it makes sense.
2) If loading a web page seems slower than it should be. (A symptom of 1).
Many other reasons. Also, many of the "tools" that are hyped to improve your internet experience in web popups - are mere costly adjustments to the registry that you can do on your own. Those adjustments usually increase buffer sizes.
