Re: pkgsrc use curl or wget

IF you really want to understand what's going on, install xplot from
pkgsrc and read the tcp plots README.   This is not trivial, but is IMHO
the only reasonable way to truly become one with transport protocols.
It's an interesting question whether your 3G system has loss that is
natural, or whether the provider is randomly imposing loss to keep usage
down (without overly having a quota), or whether there is something else
going on.

Server resources are partly about speed, but multiple connections  means
there are multiple connection blocks allocated, and multiple send
buffers, one per connection.   Whether it truly hurts much more than one
fast user is a fair question, but there's no question that it offends
server admins.
