Hi Dave,

Thanks for the mention of iperf 2. I want to clarify that the tooling over the last many years has a focus on ultra low latency both in metrics and mechanisms. Bufferbloat is supported mostly as a rating through the use of synthetic traffic and Little's Law. David Reed had pointed out that synthetic traffic does not match real world traffic, which comes from chaotic distributions and might be infinite in the possibilities (though maybe less than infinity squared.)
