How deep is your buffer

Demystifying buffers and application performance

Watch the webinar

Join us on March 14th for an informative webinar

Packet buffer memory is among the oldest topics in networking, and yet it never seems to fade in popularity. Starting from the days of buffers sized by the bandwidth delay product to what is now called "buffer bloat", from the days of 10Mbps to 100Gbps, the discussion around how deep should the buffers be never ceases to evoke opinionated responses.

In this webinar we will be joined by JR Rivers, co-founder and CTO of Cumulus Networks, a man who has designed many ultra-successful switching chips, switch products, and compute platforms, to discuss the innards of buffering. This webinar will cover data path theory, tools to evaluate network data path behavior, and the configuration variations that affect application visible outcomes.
