Part III: Appendixes > Retransmission-Related Parameters

C.4. Retransmission-Related Parameters

The retransmission timeout (RTO) values used by Solaris are far too aggressive for wide area networks, although they can be considered appropriate for local area networks. Sun thus did not follow the suggestions mentioned in RFC 1122. Newer releases of the Solaris kernel are correcting the values in question:

The recommended upper and lower bounds on the RTO are known to be inadequate on large internets. The lower bound SHOULD be measured in fractions of a second (to accommodate high speed LANs) and the upper bound should be 2*MSL, i.e., 240 seconds.
