I understand.

But there was no known reason to tweak things for SCTP.

Yeah, I agree it doesn't matter right now for SCTP. I don't know of anyone running SCTP *and* heavy NFS/raw apps simultaneously. But they open up those socket buffers for some real decent SCTP performance and watch that unconstrained raw or udp traffic bludgeon any congestion controlled streams like TCP and SCTP out of the network. But this is a rather intrinsic problem with other solutions, really..

thanks,
