Mission

The dark buffers that lead to bloat:Bufferbloat and the congestion/latency problems that currently plague the internet are almost everywhere. The Bufferbloat project intends to address these problems by:

  • Gathering together experts to tackle the queue management and system problem(s), particularly those that effect wireless networks
  • Spreading the word to correct basic assumptions regarding goodput and good buffering on the laptop, home gateway, core routers and servers.
  • Producing tools to demonstrate and diagnose the problem
  • Experiments in advanced congestion management
  • Producing patches to popular operating systems at the device driver, queuing, and TCP/ip layers to fix the problems.

There are several mailing lists, git repositories, and people here that are attempting to address the Bufferbloat issues at various levels.
