Severity: 3-Major


Currently, in Auto mode, PUSH flag is set based on the application/network conditions. The system should instead append a PUSH flag to sub-MSS TCP segments (except 0 length pure ACK) to PUSH small segments faster to the receiving application in auto mode.


Non HTTP applications receive small segments slower if PUSH Flag is not present in sub-MSS TCP segments.


Non HTTP applications sending sub MSS packets.



Fix Information

In Auto Mode, last sub-MSS TCP segments are always appended with PUSH flag.
