Enable TCP BBR on Ubuntu server

network optimise

TCP BBR (Bottleneck Bandwidth and RTT.) is a TCP congestion control algorithm developed by Google. It tackles shortcomings of traditional TCP congestion control algorithms (Reno or CUBIC). According to Google, it can achieve orders of magnitude higher bandwidth and lower latency. TCP BBR is already being used on Google.com, YouTube and Google Cloud Platform and the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) has been standardizing this algorithm Since July, 2017.

BBR requires only changes on the sender side. If you have a Linux web server, TCP BBR can achieve faster web page downloads for your visitors.

TCP BBR is supported by Linux since kernel version 4.9. Use the following command to check your Linux kernel version.

uname -r

Once you have kernel 4.9 or above, edit sysctl.conf file.

sudo nano /etc/sysctl.conf

Add the following two line at the end of the sysctl.conf file.


Save and close the file. Then reload sysctl configurations.

sudo sysctl -p

Congrats! You have successfully enabled TCP BBR on your Ubuntu.

You can check the congestion control algorithm in use with:

sysctl net.ipv4.tcp_congestion_control

Setup an IKEv2 server with strongSwan

IKEv2, or Internet Key Exchange v2, is a protocol that allows for direct IPSec tunnelling between networks. It is developed by Microsoft and Cisco (primarily) for mobile users, and introduced as an updated version of IKEv1 in 2005. The IKEv2 MOBIKE (Mobility and Multihoming) protocol allows the client to main secure connection despite network switches, such as when leaving a WiFi area for a mobile data area. IKEv2 works on most platforms, and natively supported on some platforms (OS X 10.11+, iOS 9.1+, and Windows 10) with no additional applications necessary.

HTML 相对路径和绝对路径区别分析

HTML 初学者会经常遇到这样一个问题,如何正确引用一个文件。比如,怎样在一个 HTML 网页中引用另外一个 HTML 网页作为超链接(hyperlink),怎样在一个网页中插入一张图片。如果你在引用文件时(如加入超链接,或者插入图片等),使用了错误的文件路径,就会导致引用失效(无法浏览链接文件,或无法显示插入的图片等)。
