IBM developerWorks looks
squeezing the maximum usage out of your network resources.
"Though bandwidth available to a particular protocol is limited by
Shannon's law and other factors, such as network usage patterns, most of
the time it is shoddy programming or naive coding that causes suboptimal
utilization of network resources. Performance enhancement is also an art
as much as it is a science. To get the best end-to-end throughput, you have
to employ various tools to measure performance, identify bottlenecks, and
eliminate them or minimize their impact. You can quickly get a huge
performance boost by simple and straightforward scientific methods.
