[Bloat] bufferbloat at high edge rates

It has to run as root / Admin in order to do ICMP in order to test buffer

If you run it under a non privileged user account it cannot get permission
for ICMP, so although it locates the nearest servers using http ping, it
isn't doing any buffer bloat testing.

I'm not sure that is the issue but that's the first thing that comes to
