Detailed Description and Symptoms

?One of the new features of v9 is the enhancement of Managed FileTransfers.

To utilize this feature, a setting under the [GLOBAL] section in the .ini needs to be adjusted.

tcp_nodelay=

 

If this is a NEW install after v9 SP2, the entry will already be in the .ini.

If this is an UPGRADE, the entry will need to be added to the .ini file.

If there is no entry in the file, the setting defaults to YES.

tcp_nodelay=

Nagle algorithm usage for FileTransfers and all the Agent's other sockets.

 

Allowed values:
yes (recommended default value) and no

 
no = Activates the Nagle algorithm.
yes = Procedure is not applied.

 

Activating the Nagle algorithm can improve the performance of FileTransfers, especially if you transfer many small files.

 

The BS2000 Agent always uses the Nagle algorithm and does not have this INI-file parameter
