Enabling TCP Buffering of Responses

Jun 08, 2015

The NetScaler appliance provides a TCP buffering option that buffers only responses from the load balanced server. This enables the appliance to deliver server responses to the client at the maximum speed that the client can accept them. The appliance allocates from 0 through 4095 megabytes (MB) of memory for TCP buffering, and from 4 through 20480 kilobytes (KB) of memory per connection.

Note: TCP buffering set at the service level takes precedence over the global setting. For more information about configuring TCP buffering globally, see "TCP Buffering."

To enable TCP Buffering on a service by using the command line interface

At the command prompt, type:

set service <name> -TCPB <Value>


set service Service-HTTP-1 -TCPB YES

To enable TCP Buffering on a service by using the configuration utility

  1. Navigate to Traffic Management > Load Balancing > Services, and open a service.
  2. In Advanced Settings, select Traffic Settings, and select TCP Buffering.
