Jim Gettys says
people have heard of bufferbloat at all, it is usually just an abstraction
despite having personal experience with it. Bufferbloat can occur in your
operating system, your home router, your broadband gear, wireless, and
almost anywhere in the Internet. They still think that if experience poor
Internet speed means they must need more bandwidth, and take vast speed
variation for granted. Sometimes, adding bandwidth can actually hurt rather
than help. Most people have no idea what they can do about bufferbloat. So
I’ve been working to put together several demos to help make bufferbloat
concrete, and demonstrate at least partial mitigation.
useful viewing for anybody who is concerned with the problem and how to
begin addressing it.
