Footprint size of a TCP/IP connection ?

Footprint size of a TCP/IP connection ?

Hi All,

I know there isn't a perfectly accurate answer to this question, but I want
to get a feel for the total "cost" of a Linux TCP/IP connection.

By cost, I mean the total amount of resources used in kernel objects etc.
Ideally I'd also like it to be equated to a single amount of "memory" used
for the connection. I suspect that it would have to be (say) at least 500
bytes or so ?

So if any Linux kenel networking gurus have an answer for this or know where
else I could find an answer to this, I'd much apprectiate it !



1. How to set the buffer size of TCP/IP connection?

I know that when I writing TCP/IP socket program in C, the system will
allocate a buffer to hold the data to be sent and received, how can I
check the size of this buffer?, how can I change the size of this buffer

2. Solaris Boot CD

3. Sparc 5/Solaris 2.4 TCP/IP Problem with SL/IP connections

4. small browser

5. tcp/ip LAN IPs and dynamic IP ppp connections....

6. HOW to EXTEND SIZE of LINUX partion??????


8. Universal serial bus

9. SLS X wants tcp/ip, tcp/ip won't compile, what now?
