Subject: 200 millisecond timeouts in TCP


Using tcpdump and systemtap I am seeing that sometimes retransmission
of data is sent after waiting 200 milliseconds.  However sometimes
retransmissions happen quicker.

Is there a specifc event that causes these 200 milisec delays to kick
in?  Are those events identifiable in netstat -s output?

Also do you know if the timeout numbers for TCP are configurable parameters?

I am testing on RHEL5 with this kernel: 2.6.18-164.15.1.el5.
