Thanks for the suggestions, and I've done some initial
adjustments with beneficial results.  I was a bit more
conservative and went for a 1MB sendbuf_max / recvbuf_max.

One thing I didn't see was any corresponding adjustment of
kern.sbmax; doesn't it also need to be as large as you want the
TCP window to be able to grow?

Best regards,
