Subject: [esp8266/Arduino] Found a way to upload data VERY fast by
I am posting this here because I never found the solution online, and
I've been looking for days. Before this 'hack', the transfer speed on
Windows it was about 6.7 KBps, and on Linux, about 36KBps
Now the speed is very high, something like many mbps, at least 187
KBps, limited by my SD reading time.
So, here is to to send data really fast, on any host:
First, you have to disable the Nagle 'feature', like so:
Then, you need to set the packet size HIGHER than the MTU, which is
1460 bytes. I got good results sending 1760 at a time, but as I said,
the bottleneck is the SD card (I am uploading files by ftp). If the
size is lower or equal than the MTU, you won't get good results. I
think the trick is forcing it to send two packets.
