I currently have two Solaris 2.6 FTP servers downloading approximately 300gb
per day via a T3. Both servers are running wu_ftp 2.4(3) and sustain
approximately 400 concurrent 'ftpd' processes at any one time. Users are
starting to report dropped TCP connections after 10 minutes which I believe
is due to limited bandwidth on the T3, which sometimes hits utilization
rates up to 80%.
Apart from moving to a internet connection with more bandwidth, are there
any useful 'ndd' parameters that can be set to make my servers more robust
to bandwidth spikes?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
