Description Mark Nottingham 2014-04-30 12:32:58 UTC
The emerging consensus in the Web performance community is that TLS record size is an important factor for performance -- especially in HTTP/2 and SPDY, which are multiplexed.

Apache should make the record size configurable. Eventually, it'll probably be desirable to have it become dynamically tuned based upon connection status/parameters (e.g., in a module), but a static configuration directive would be a good first step.
