UDP Buffer Size?
I am being asked this question by a customer of mine about a standard-type UDP VIP:
the BigIP buffer UDP packets before transmitting in either direction, and if
so, what is that buffer size?
My inclination is to say no, but I'm not sure I fully understand all the reasons. Here are the ones that I can come up with:
* I find no documentation about UDP buffer sizes.
* UDP is connectionless, meaning that each packet is an independent object. So there is no way for the LTM to relate one packet to another, there is no way to buffer.
Can someone elaborate a bit on the concept of an LTM UDP buffer?
