>>> Be careful what you do with buffers. See http://www.bufferbloat.net/ if you don't understand how big buffers can be bad.  I have to admit, I am not yet satisfied with how we're handling buffering, and I'd like a dynamic solution. However, in practice, we seem to be doing OK.

as Nick Hilliard outlined the size and speed of a buffer makes the 
difference.
bufferbloat does not tell which size / speed is bad - they only say 
buffers are bad - which is not true.
