2011 white paper@high-perf messaging

https://www.informatica.com/downloads/1568_high_perf_messaging_wp/Topics-in-High-Performance-Messaging.htm is a 2011 white paper by some experts. I have saved the html in my google drive. Here are some QQ  + zbs knowledge pearls. Each sentence in the article can expand to a blogpost .. thin->thick.

  • Exactly under what conditions would TCP provide low-latency
  • TCP’s primary concern is bandwidth sharing, to ensure “pain is felt equally by all TCP streams“. Consequently, a latency-sensitive TCP stream can’t have priority over other streams.
    • Therefore, one recommendation is to use a dedicated network having no congestion or controlled congestion. Over this network, the latency-sensitive system would not be victimized by the inherent speed control in TCP.
  • to see how many received packets are delayed (on the receiver end) due to OOS, use netstat -s
  • TCP guaranteed delivery is “better later than never”, but latency-sensitive systems prefer “better never than late”. I think UDP is the choice.
  • The white paper features an in-depth discussion of group rate. Eg: one mkt data sender feeding multiple (including some slow) receivers.
