Improving Slow download speeds on Windows Server 2003

On some older versions of Windows (notably Windows Server 2003), Jetty's performance can be less-than-stellar by default. To address this, the Jetty team has developed a tuning step which can make Nexus more responsive on old Windows platforms.

To implement this fix, modify "<nexus_root>/conf/jetty.xml", changing this:

    <Call name="addConnector">
        <Arg>
            <New class="org.eclipse.jetty.server.nio.SelectChannelConnector">
              <Set name="host">${application-host}</Set>
              <Set name="port">${application-port}</Set>
            </New>
        </Arg>
    </Call>

To this:

    <Call name="addConnector">
        <Arg>
            <New class="org.eclipse.jetty.server.nio.SelectChannelConnector">
              <Set name="host">${application-host}</Set>
              <Set name="port">${application-port}</Set>
              <Set name="responseBufferSize">512</Set>
            </New>
        </Arg>
    </Call>


NOTE: full documentation for this tuning step can be found on the Jetty wiki at: http://docs.codehaus.org/display/JETTY/Slow+Win2003
