We've written an Introduction to bufferbloat problem that we believe is both accessible to non-technical readers and informative to techies. We recommend you start there to get a feel for the nature and scope of the problem. Then, read our mission statement to find out what we're doing about it.

There's also a Glossary that goes into more technical depth on bufferbloat-related terminology. You may find an older technical introduction interesting if you are a programmer or network engineer.

There are Experiments you can perform on your home hardware to detect (and possibly fix) bufferbloat problems.

Much of the original analysis and discussion of bufferbloat took place on technical blogs. We have cllected a tasty selection of blog references for your reading pleasure.

You can read bufferbloat-related Quotes from the great, near-great, and and not-so-great. A page of unashamedly geeky Humor exists as well.

Our project has very active mailing lists on which we're developing anti-bufferbloatr fixes, diagnostic ttools, documentation, and other fun things. You cam also look at a ToDo list of projects that need work.

Please join the project and pitch in.
