Following up on my recent post about how solving the Bufferbloat problem could dramatically increase the speed of Internet usage, I recently learned via a Google+ post by Michael Richardson of this video of a presentation by Jesper Dangaard Brouer of Red Hat at the recent DevConf.cz Brno 2013 titled: "Beyond the existences of Bufferbloat – Have we found the cure?” The slides are available for download as is the video that is embedded below.
The presentation is an interesting dive down into the technical weeds of what exactly is causing this bufferbloat problem and how it could be fixed with a combination of factors, most noticeably the CoDel (Controlled Delay) active queue management technique. I found it a useful explanation of many facets of the problem and solution and would encourage folks interested in this topic to give it a look. I'll also note as I did in my earlier post that more info about the bufferbloat problem in general can be found at www.bufferbloat.net.
