UseNagleAlgorithm

Enable/disable the Nagle algorithm for Telnet.

Synopsis

[Miscellaneous]    UseNagleAlgorithm=n

Description

The Nagle algorithm makes Telnet more efficient. It reduces the number of IP packets sent over the network by consolidating messages that are sent within a small time interval into a single IP packet. When the Nagle algorithm is enabled, the operating system waits some interval before actually committing the data from a send command, in the hopes that the application will call send again with more data that can be consolidated with the first. For details see https://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc896.txt

The value of the UseNagleAlgorithm setting may be 1 or 0:

  • When 1 (true), use the Nagle algorithm.

  • When 0 (false), do not use it.

Examples

UseNagleAlgorithm=0

Range of Values

0 or 1. The default is 0.
