Introduced : BIG-IP_v12.0.0
Sets the mode for the Nagle algorithm. If the mode is set to TCP_MODE_ENABLED, sending data is delayed if it is less than MSS in size unless all prior data has been ACKed. This leads to fewer small packets sent and a smaller chance of dropped packets. However, this can have poor effects for interactive protocols such as telnet over high latency links. If the mode is set to TCP_MODE_DISABLED, sending data that is less than MSS in size is not delayed. If mode is set to TCP_MODE_AUTO, the use of Nagle&aposs algorithm is decided based on the network characteristics such as the use of delayed ACKs.
