Tcp/ip Tuning For Better Speed

Apr 11, 2008

i have this couple of windows 2003 servers, colocated in data center, i need to improve download speeds to our customers who are at least 200ms away, the end user is not using download accelarator,

is there a way that any settings to be done on server so that per thread speed can be increased, this case the server and client both have the ability to make a connection at more than a megabit speed. i did some search but all the articles point to end user and not the server saying to increase tcp window size etc.. not sure if those articles relate to server side changes.

Kernel Tuning

Apr 24, 2009

as part of a project I have lately been looking into various aspects of kernel tuning. Most notably lately tuning the TCP stack for more efficient memory usage/throughput.

Thought I would start this thread to mention some of the tools I'd found for doing testing and see what anyone else had to recommend.

So far my favorite of the bunch is nuttcp. Its easy to use and gives a very good idea of how much of your bandwidth you are able to utilize.

A few interesting web pages are as follows for anyone interested in the topic:

[url]- Tuning TCP for High Bandwidth Delay networks

[url]- TCP Tuning Cook book, some interesting information in there as well

[url]...formanceTuning - Performance Tuning TWiki. Has a list of useful tools, flags for existing tools and ways to monitor network performance from a system level, along with some suggestions of things to correct

Tuning Sites For MySQL

Jun 16, 2008

What have you found to be the best tuning sites for MySQL?

I'm getting into a bit of trouble. We have a weather site, and with all of the traffic, we're getting a little tapped out. When the loads hit between 134 and 160, the mail clients start to time out. Apache is still pretty fast, although it takes a little longer once you cross loads of 80, 5 second page loads, but when it hits between 130 and 160, I'm seeing 15-20 second page loads. DA is impossible above 80 but SSH is still very workable. Apache is tweaked to the max. I've kicked up some of the sizes in MySQL several weeks ago, and that did it them. However, we're taking on about 22,000 to 25,000 uniques an hour now. We normally can handle that no problem, but people are asking for maps a lot more now with the flooding and all. That requires a lot of MySQL lookups and the CPU creating a lot more maps. The maps I already cache for the duration, which is 15 minutes. The only horse I have left to whip is MySQL. After that, it will probably be a move to FreeBSD 7, but I'd like to throw in a few tweaks yet before we do that.

MySQL Version 4.1.22-standard i686

Uptime = 0 days 0 hrs 4 min 15 sec
Avg. qps = 17
Total Questions = 4479
Threads Connected = 1

Warning: Server has not been running for at least 48hrs.
It may not be safe to use these recommendations

To find out more information on how each of these
runtime variables effects performance visit:

Current long_query_time = 10 sec.
You have 1 out of 4491 that take longer than 10 sec. to complete
The slow query log is NOT enabled.
Your long_query_time may be too high, I typically set this under 5 sec.

Current thread_cache_size = 128
Current threads_cached = 6
Current threads_per_sec = 0
Historic threads_per_sec = 0
Your thread_cache_size is fine

Current max_connections = 2000
Current threads_connected = 1
Historic max_used_connections = 7
The number of used connections is 0% of the configured maximum.
You are using less than 10% of your configured max_connections.
Lowering max_connections could help to avoid an over-allocation of memory
See "MEMORY USAGE" section to make sure you are not over-allocating

Max Memory Ever Allocated : 96 M
Configured Max Per-thread Buffers : 10 G
Configured Max Global Buffers : 58 M
Configured Max Memory Limit : 10 G
Total System Memory : 3.95 G

Max memory limit exceeds 85% of total system memory

Current MyISAM index space = 78 M
Current key_buffer_size = 16 M
Key cache miss rate is 1 : 735
Key buffer fill ratio = 8.00 %
Your key_buffer_size seems to be too high.
Perhaps you can use these resources elsewhere

Query cache is enabled
Current query_cache_size = 32 M
Current query_cache_used = 4 M
Current query_cach_limit = 1 M
Current Query cache fill ratio = 14.83 %
Your query_cache_size seems to be too high.
Perhaps you can use these resources elsewhere
MySQL won't cache query results that are larger than query_cache_limit in size

Current sort_buffer_size = 2 M
Current record/read_rnd_buffer_size = 256 K
Sort buffer seems to be fine

Current join_buffer_size = 1.00 M
You have had 0 queries where a join could not use an index properly
Your joins seem to be using indexes properly

Current open_files_limit = 10000 files
The open_files_limit should typically be set to at least 2x-3x
that of table_cache if you have heavy MyISAM usage.
Your open_files_limit value seems to be fine

Current table_cache value = 1024 tables
You have a total of 721 tables
You have 93 open tables.
The table_cache value seems to be fine

Current max_heap_table_size = 16 M
Current tmp_table_size = 32 M
Of 212 temp tables, 0% were created on disk
Effective in-memory tmp_table_size is limited to max_heap_table_size.
Created disk tmp tables ratio seems fine

Current read_buffer_size = 1 M
Current table scan ratio = 17754 : 1
You have a high ratio of sequential access requests to SELECTs
You may benefit from raising read_buffer_size and/or improving your use of indexes.

Current Lock Wait ratio = 1 : 76
You may benefit from selective use of InnoDB.
If you have long running SELECT's against MyISAM tables and perform
frequent updates consider setting 'low_priority_updates=1'

how to make the changes in red? My server works good for awhile, but then gets REALLY REALLY slow.

Tuning A FreeBSD VPS For Network Performance

Jul 13, 2009

I have a VPS system on the west coast of the US, and access it from the east coast. Sometimes I can get 1Mbyte/sec downloads, and other times it is as bad a 250KB/sec.

I have done some pings, and have not seen any packet loss. I've experimented with sysctl and changed some parameters to hopefully help, but really haven't seen much of a difference.

Does anyone have a recommendation as to what I could do different to squeeze a little more speed out of the connection? The problem is that from both sides of the US, I see ping times (depending on different ISPs on the east coast) from 80ms-120ms.

Here is what I've tuned so far:

Speed- At FDC ( Speed Tests )

Sep 14, 2007

I am having some serious speed issues with my 1Gbit server at FDC. After opening a ticket, they've simply dismissed it as a server configuration problem. However I am convinced it isn't because certain ISP's (usually universities) get good speeds, usually 700kb/sec but the vast majority of my users get between 20-50 kb/sec and it's causing a lot of complaints.

Furthermore I have other servers with FDC which are 100mbit which perform better than my 1 Gbit one. There are no server bottlenecks (CPU/RAM/HDD), since I've closely monitored them (PRTG) and they aren't even heavily utilised. So the problem is with the network at some point.

Best Speed

May 22, 2007

After reading tons and tons of messages on these forums... I have decided to get a VPS from KnownHost or

KnownHost packages are a bit more expensive than SLHost (prepaying 6 months), however I am not looking to save a buck or two. I want the best speed for the money.

Can anyone tell me which of these two has the best performance (server performance and bandwidth performance) for the money?

KnownHost offers:
200GB Premium Bandwidth
256MB Guaranteed RAM Burstable to 768 MB
10 GB Disk Space
$5 - Control Panel
$402 per year with Control Panel

SLHost offers:
300 GB Bandwidth
384 Guaranteed RAM (Burstable unknown?)
20 GB Storage
4 IPs
Free Control Panel
$389.64 per year

Just trying to figure out which one would give me the best performance...

It's located in Kansas city, MO.

Processor Speed

Mar 3, 2007

After reading a lot of good reviews on Softlayer around here, I was thinking about switching to them. They have some really good deals and I'm planning on getting one of their dual opterons, but I have a question about the processor speed in relation to database intense stuff (like a forum with a good number of users on at once, or a CMS).

I have the option of either going for a Dual Opteron 248 (2.2 gHz) or a 252 (2.6 gHz) which costs $50 more. My question: is the 252 really worth the extra money compared to the 248? All I have on my server is an IPB forum with 100-450+ users on at any given time, and a static site (soon to be converted to a CMS), and I'm thinking that RAM is more important than the processor for a database app like those (that, and hard drive speed). So I wanted to know if it would be better to go with the 248 and spend the money on more Ram and a SA SCSI 10k drive or two?

I just bought a hosting on one of the American servers providers, so I am interested how fast my site loads at different locations around the world. Mainly I am interested in US, Europe and Australia. I am from Europe but, my connection is not so great
I want you input on how fast does it load on your end, and maybe how high ping is from your provider.

I hope there are some people who want to help me. I want post a link here because then people will complaint that I am advertising the site...

So if it is not a problem just post a message on this topic and I will send you a link true private message.
