SubjectTCP Segmentation Offload
Date
Hi All,

There is a nice feature (I saw it on 3Com EtherLink Server NIC cards)
called "TCP Segmentation Offload". Which means that the stack is presented
with a larger MTU than eth, and the NIC produces smaller tcp segments.
More info at M$
http://www.microsoft.com/HWDEV/network/taskoffload.htm#Segment

I would like to hear your comments, weather this is something that can gain
real performance, and how to incorporate this into the Linux stack (At least
I didn't
see any references to it in kernel 2.4.(x<4)).

deca // sizeof(void)
