There are some other things to look at with UDP.  Monitor the output
of "netstat -su" looking at "packet receive errors".  If this number
is going up then you are losing packets.

One thing is to increase the size of the collector buffer:


Another is to increase some system parameters:


net.core.rmem_default = 65535
net.core.wmem_default = 65535
net.core.rmem_max = 8388607
net.core.wmem_max = 8388607
net.ipv4.tcp_wmem = 4096 65536 8388607
net.ipv4.tcp_rmem = 4096 65536 8388607

We have also done this:

MASTER_UPDATE_INTERVAL = $RANDOM_CHOICE(290,291,292,293,294,295,296,297,298,299,301,302,303,304,305,306,307,308,309,310)
UPDATE_INTERVAL        = $RANDOM_CHOICE(290,291,292,293,294,295,296,297,298,299,301,302,303,304,305,306,307,308,309,310)

... on the compute nodes to keep them from flooding the collector all
at the same time (since they tend to sync up if you ever do a
condor_reconfig -all).
