Attn: #FCC #netneutrality     On explaining the problems in your new packet loss statistic requirement: If called to testify, I will testify. If called to demo, I will demo. If called to explain, I will point to existing materials and videos. If not called, I'll just keep working on #makewififast  with as many people as I can scrounge - because, in my world, code is law.

Nick Weaver is back in my good graces. Now, if he could just write a third piece, in #forbes    explaining exactly why packet loss is needed for low latency internet, with pictures and graphs that explain it, maybe a few CTOs and FCC types will get the size of the #bufferbloat   and latency under load problem on our hands.

/me chortles at the thought of someone high up in government or in a  big coporation comparing the totally bogus and not enough packet loss  speedtest.net results for various providers, vs the data netalyzer gets, or netperf-wrappers gets - and asking - "Wait, is THIS why our network is so slow??"
I’ve previously worried about the devil in the details on the FCC’s network neutrality regulations. In particular, the press release concerning packet loss as a metric worried me, as optimizing for zero loss has potentially dangerous consequences. Fortunately the order itself is now public, and although the devil may be [...]

It's any tech person's nightmare of inefficiency when the knowledge is out there and "they" don't get to it.

one of my things on my round to it list is to tear apart all the wiresha
rk captures we have of the testbed data from rrul test variants and graph them like this, also.

I would certainly like it if layer 3 routing was as fast as switching. So many cloud problems go away. Until then be careful with your vxlans!

Exactly; if it's forwarded by switch silicon, the performance difference is completely negligible.  The constraints on what you can do are quite different, however, and making a cloud setup look like an ethernet switch is a goal for some providers.  Nevertheless, you can do that with GRE.

Tractors USED to be basically open source. I know people still running tractors 60+ years old, and repairing them themselves.

There is a project to create all sorts of open source industrial hardware (including tractors): http://opensourceecology.org/

Story
Tagline
singer, pianist, guitarist, writer, experimenter, theorist, hacker, maker, faker - in no particular order, on any given day. And I also write code.
Introduction
I used to be just a geek. Then I sold my house, left my cubicle, and travelled around the world, trying never to touch a computer, but observe how they were used, and how much better we could use them... now I'm still travelling, and still without a home - but trying once again to help hold up the sky, and finish what I helped start, so long ago.
Bragging rights
can surf big waves and fix big problems, and when I can't do either, can 'tom sawyer' others into thinking that they can do the same, and exceed their own limits.
