Use the java.net.Socket.setTcpNoDelay methodTag(s): Networking


java.net.Socket.setTcpNoDelay() is used to enable/disable TCP_NODELAY which disable/enable Nagle's algorithm.

Nagle's algorithm try to conserve bandwidth by minimizing the number of segments that are sent. When applications wish to decrease network latency and increase performance, they can disable Nagle's algorithm (that is enable TCP_NODELAY). Data will be sent earlier, at the cost of an increase in bandwidth consumption. The Nagle's algorithm is described in RFC 896.

You get the current "TCP_NODELAY" setting with java.net.Socket.getTcpNoDelay()
