Projects / libnodelay


libnodelay is an LD_PRELOAD library for disabling Nagle's algorithm. Disabling Nagle's algorithm can result in a performance improvement for latency-sensitive applications that use TCP. Using the library may be easier than digging through a mess of code and confusing or obscure configuration options.
