Interesting Result: When the packet loss rate is set to 1/6 ( ie, drop one out of every 6 packets ). The elapse time varies a lot.
tcpdump result shows that there's some time gap between sending packets, ie. the sending host "madrid" slows down.
|Iteration Times||Time elapse (Second)|
"........": I had planed to do 10 times experiments for each "Iteration Times". but it take too long time at "......" So I gave up, and start new experiments.
The result shows that the first experiment always take less elapse time
The tcpdump(tcpdump dst host 192.168.2.2 ) result on router (dublin) is: dumpRegular1.gz
