It does have a throughput graph available.  However, this is based on raw 
inter-packet spacing, so it'll have line-rate bursts interspersed by very short 
gaps if Cake experiences any scheduling latency greater than the serialisation 
delay of one MTU.

The best counter to that might be to select a low rate, so that the 
serialisation delay is 1-2ms or so.  It should then be easy to contrast with 
HTB's behaviour at that same rate.
