Hmmm... The `--test-parameter=ping_hosts=gstatic.com` information appears in 
the command-line summary but not in the charts. Is this correct?

If so, the charts display significantly different latency depending on which -H 
host gets used.  The Terminal display (bottom) shows fairly consistent ping 
times and transfer rate measurements using either of the two hosts.

This raises two questions:

1. Could flent charts use the `--test-parameter=ping_hosts=...` instead of 
values from the -H host? 

2. Why is there a discrepency between the `--test-parameter=ping_hosts=...` 
reading (showing 30-38 msec in my tests) and a separate, concurrent fping test 
(see original post, where it was running 20-22 msec)?

Thanks.
