Aggregating multiple packets into one OpenVPN encrypted packet

Post by roymuzz » Tue Nov 06, 2018 12:17 am

Hi,

I have setup my OpenVPN server and am just looking at tuning some parameters. I am wondering if it is possible to encrypt multiple packets within one OpenVPN packet. Particularly in the case of TCP Acks I am thinking that if OpenVPN could just wait and aggregate ~8 120 byte TCP acks into one 1500 byte there might be some gains to be had there, particularly if you then ran compression over the top of all of those TCP headers carrying very similar unencrypted data.

Many thanks for your time
