Early Test Results

Native IPv6 vs IPv4 fairness test… passed.

Tested with a 40Mbit uplink setting, RTT of ~5ms
(sfqred with the front-of-queue patch)

(it would be good to get a tunnelled results for 6in4 and 6to4)

#!/bin/sh

# Test three bins in the simple_qos script, ipv4 and ipv6 equally

The first tcp.rr result is from a previous test of TCP_RR without AF42 enabled.

This is TCP_RR, repeated, but this time with AF42 set, at the same time as the previous data

Note: huchra is configured as a drop tail system. I would suspect better performance with both sides running sfq.
