About client profile (apm-forwarding-client-tcp)

How does a virtual server configured with Client Profile (apm-forwarding-client-tcp) behave? How does it differ from tcp client profile? I need to understand the working of apm-forwarding-client-tcp profile. I did not find any helpful document/explanation anywhere. I would be grateful if anyone could explain me.

  • Here are the specific option differences in apm-forwarding-client-tcp to optimize the client-side TCP profile for APM network forwarding traffic:

        early-retransmit disabled
        ecn disabled
        enhanced-loss-recovery disabled
        fast-open disabled
        init-cwnd 3
        init-rwnd 3
        keep-alive-interval 60
        nagle enabled
        proxy-buffer-high 49152
        proxy-options enabled
        rate-pace disabled
        slow-start disabled
        tail-loss-probe disabled

    Most of theses changes are around congestion recovery and performance - the options are detailed in
