Subject: Re: [PATCH net-next] hv_sock: perf: Allow the socket buffer size
 options to influence the actual socket buffers

From: Sunil Muthuswamy <>

> Currently, the hv_sock buffer size is static and can't scale to the
> bandwidth requirements of the application. This change allows the
> applications to influence the socket buffer sizes using the SO_SNDBUF and
> the SO_RCVBUF socket options.
> Few interesting points to note:
> 1. Since the VMBUS does not allow a resize operation of the ring size, the
> socket buffer size option should be set prior to establishing the
> connection for it to take effect.
> 2. Setting the socket option comes with the cost of that much memory being
> reserved/allocated by the kernel, for the lifetime of the connection.
> Perf data:
> Total Data Transfer: 1GB
> Single threaded reader/writer
> Results below are summarized over 10 iterations.
