   [SM] OK, I will bite, how do you measure achievable throughput without actually generating it? Packet-pair techniques are notoriously imprecise and have funny failure modes.

When you mention packet-pair techniques, are you referring to Kathleen Nichols' passive ping work, or some other correlation scheme?

I'm interested in the idea of measuring packet timings to our customers as a way of detecting short-lived issues, which I find excessively annoying to detect and quantify (;-))
