[Request] BBR congestion control

Postby pth3434 » Sun Mar 12, 2017 12:31 pm

As of 4.9.13-4, support for the BBR TCP congestion control algorithm has not been compiled into the kernel:

Code: Select all
% sysctl net.ipv4.tcp_available_congestion_control
net.ipv4.tcp_available_congestion_control = cubic reno


Support for BBR can be enabled with "CONFIG_TCP_CONG_BBR=y". It has already been added to the vanilla Arch Linux kernel, so it'd be (really) nice to see it in ALARM too.

(Also not sure if this is the right forum for requests, but as it's related to the kernel...)
