In this article, we provide the research community with a dataset
for the buffering delays that data packets experience at the TCP
sending side in the realm of Cyber-Physical Systems (CPSs).
We focus on the buffering that occurs at the sender side due
to the the adverse interaction between the Nagle algorithm and
the delayed acknowledgement algorithm, which both were originally
introduced into TCP to prevent sending out many smallsized
packets over the network. These two algorithms are turned
on (enabled) by default in most operating systems.
