Is there a kernel config or a /proc file associated with TCP Short
Messages? Or is it enabled by default? Eg with the patch one had to
'echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_faster_timeouts', but this file is not
in 2.4's /proc.
On a related note, does anyone have any TCP options I can turn on to
improve the network performance of my beowulf? I have 50 nodes using
channel-bonding on 4 cisco switches.
