[Cerowrt-devel] reproducing network research results with mosh

Just curious... have you run RRUL-style testing of mosh over a congested link?   Not knowing in what way mosh is "UDP-based" I wonder what happens to it when you run a program like, say, "top", over mosh when there is heavy file transfer load.

I embraced mosh wholeheartedly about a year ago. I've been installing
it everywhere I go, with much of the same enthusiasm I had for putting
mosaic on everything back in the early 90s.

As a ssh replacement for interactive traffic, mosh is of tremendous
use, particularly in the case where machines are suspended/resumed,
move access points, or are experiencing wildly variable latency and/or
long RTTs.

It's now available across most unix OSes, and often installable via
the standard package manager.


Try it!

It would be awesome if this tech could make it into a generation of
command line interfaces for embedded gear like routers and switches.
However at the moment the server code requires C++ and libstd++, which
makes it overlarge for the lowest end of gear.
