Solaris Express Developer Edition What's New

UDP and TCP Performance Enhancement

This networking enhancement is new in the Solaris Express 12/05 release.

Performance of both the TCP protocol and the UDP protocol has been enhanced in this release. The enhancements result in lower latency and higher throughput for both transmit and receive performance. Network applications yield better performance due to system performance improvements. In particular, those applications which heavily transmit and receive UDP packets or utilize TCP loopback connections show greatest benefit.

For more information, see the ip(7P), tcp(7P), and udp(7P) man pages. See also the Solaris Tunable Parameters Reference Manual.
