ServicePointManager.UseNagleAlgorithm Property

Determines whether the Nagle algorithm is used by the service points managed by this ServicePointManager object.

Namespace: System.Net
Assembly: System (in system.dll)

public:
static property bool UseNagleAlgorithm {
	bool get ();
	void set (bool value);
}
/** @property */
public static boolean get_UseNagleAlgorithm ()

/** @property */
public static void set_UseNagleAlgorithm (boolean value)

public static function get UseNagleAlgorithm () : boolean

public static function set UseNagleAlgorithm (value : boolean)

Not applicable.

Property Value

true to use the Nagle algorithm; otherwise, false. The default value is true.

The Nagle algorithm is used to reduce network traffic by buffering small packets of data and transmitting them as a single packet. This process is also referred to as "nagling"; it is widely used because it reduces the number of packets transmitted and lowers the overhead per packet.

Changing the value of this property does not affect existing ServicePoint objects. Only new service points created after the change are affected.

The Nagle algorithm is fully described in IETF RFC 896.

The following code example sets this property.

ServicePointManager::UseNagleAlgorithm = true;
ServicePointManager::Expect100Continue = true;
ServicePointManager::CheckCertificateRevocationList = true;
ServicePointManager::DefaultConnectionLimit = ServicePointManager::DefaultPersistentConnectionLimit;


ServicePointManager.set_UseNagleAlgorithm(true);
ServicePointManager.set_Expect100Continue(true);
ServicePointManager.set_CheckCertificateRevocationList(true);
ServicePointManager.set_DefaultConnectionLimit(
    ServicePointManager.DefaultPersistentConnectionLimit);
