A non-optimal, Decentralized, Parameter-less Network Buffer Size
In this paper, we propose a sizing of network buffers that is easy to deploy, requires no application-level state or semantics, requires no measurements from the network, and is fully decentralized. Our approach does not rely on machine learning or other complex algorithms. The tradeoff inherent in our proposed buffer size is that it is very likely inefficient across a wide range of deployments. However, there is likely a small, finite number of networks where our proposed buffer size is optimal. This paper is tailored to such networks.

Do not fuck with graphic designers
By releasing your chart, instead of meaningfully educating the public, you willfully obfuscated an already complicated proposal. There is no simple proposal to solve this problem. You instead chose to shout "12! 16! 37! 9! 24!" while we were trying to count something.
