I was very pleased to see this tweet go by today:


where Mark Nottingham fixed his bufferbloat on bigpond cable
using a very simple htb + fq_codel script. (I note ubnt edgerouters
also have a nice gui for that, as does openwrt)

But: he does point out a flaw in netanalyzr's current tests[1], in that
it does not correctly detect the presence of aqm or FQing on the link,
(in part due to not running long enough, and also in not using
multiple distinct flows) and like the "ping loss considered harmful"
thread last week on the aqm and bloat lists, matching user
expectations and perceptions would be good with any public
tests that exist.

There is some stuff in the aqm evaluation guide's "burst tolerance"
tests that sort of applies, but... ideas?

[1] I am not aware of any other tests for FQ than mine, which are still
kind of hacky. What I have is in my isochronous repo on github.
