- Careful Chrome users, this search box might be "Not secure"


/proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_sack - TCP Selective Acknowledgements. They can    
reduce retransmissions, however make servers more prone to DDoS Attacks   
and increase CPU utilization.

Good advice from Suse:

Give this a shot if you find you need relief (with a trade-off):
echo 0 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_sack
