Yeah, thought so.  We certainly tune TCP/IP (and just about everything else)
in all fileservers here for maximum throughput, be it over http, ftp, CIFS
or NFS.  If there is a reason to shape bandwidth, it is done through other
means at the outbond QoS shaper.  That's why I found it strange that he
asked about multi-megabyte windows.
