Dear All,
 I have been trying to find out the definition of small and large
packets. There are protocols such as TFRC-SP which are used for small
packets. I am wondering how do we define small packets? What is the
size limit?

My thoughts on this is : any packet size less than 576 bytes, could be
considered as small packets. And more than 576 bytes, could be termed
large packets.

Any thoughts.
