The size ratio should give you an idea about the RTT difference explained by simple transit times and anything on top of that might be related to queueing. I am probably severely underestimating the scope of your question, but I believe that that also has the advantage that, unlike packet-tuples, will not be as sensitive to bonded path segments (which probably do not exist in your environment in the first place).

I was also considering adding the option to irtt for different packet sizes in each cluster. I’d have to change the IPDV calculation to only calculate it for like-sized packets, which is possible.

I see how using the RTTs for different packet lengths might help estimate the transmission time, but not how I could use that to differentiate between channel contention and queueing delays(?) Maybe I see what you’re saying, that in addition to varying the DSCP value, I can also vary length to estimate the transmission time, and subtract that from the estimate I get for “contention” to have a better approximation of how much contention time there is, which sounds like a good idea... :)

I don’t know of any bonded segments in this case…
