Is there any way for Aerospike to max out the MSS?


#1

We found VPN routers to run hot at times due to the small packets and packet/sec, Is there a way for Aerospike to max out the MSS? This should help the cpu load and would be more efficient.

As of now, XDR deals with one record at a time. i.e it ships the record and wait for the ack in an async way. The record size can be much less than the MSS. Unfortunately we still have to ship it out.

A project is planned down the line on the roadmap where we want to do batch-writes via XDR. When that gets done, we will club multiple records and ship them in one packet. This will heavily reduce the back and forth between server and destination using small packets.

Thanks a lot. :heart_eyes:
