backing up to a Drobo CIFS VFS: Error -11 sending data on socket to server, Bufferbloat?

Samba - samba-technical mailing list
We back up via a cron job using tar via a campus to campus dedicated fiber line. We get this error about 4 out of 5 times the job runs:

This is on Fedora 25. I saw this 2013 thread, http://linux-cifs.vger.kernel.narkive.com/qolENUBe/errors-writing-large-files-to-cifs-shares <http://linux-cifs.vger.kernel.narkive.com/qolENUBe/errors-writing-large-files-to-cifs-shares> which mentions Bufferbloat. Is there a way to perhaps tune a kernel parameter in /etc/sysctl.conf?
