CACM article on "bufferbloat"
Recently ICSI researcher and Netalyzr co-developer Nick Weaver participated in a disussion with Vint Cerf, Van Jacobson, and Jim Gettys of bufferbloat, the tendency of network equipment to employ excessively large buffers that impose unnecessary latencies on network traffic. Netalyzr measures these buffer sizes, and the findings we reported in our IMC'10 paper have attracted significant interest in the community.
The roundtable discussion formed the basis of a feature in the February edition of the Communications of the ACM. The resulting article, BufferBloat: What's Wrong With the Internet?, is now online.
