The Scope of Network Distributed Computing; Tuning TCP

The scope of Network Distributed Computing (NDC) is quite impressive. This chapter presents an overview of some of the many relevant areas of NDC research and development today. If you’re looking for a solid overview of all things NDC — from the Semantic Web, P2P, and Pervasive Computing to Distributed Databases, Filesystems, Media, and Storage — you’ve come to the right place.Elsewhere, this article describes some of key Transport Control Protocol (TCP) tunable parameters related to performance tuning. More importantly, it describes how these tunables work, how they interact with each other, and how they impact network traffic when they are modified.
