Actually, I want the ability to plot the "best"`ping_host` (that is, lowest
latency host), since that's going to display the biggest variance. A few
milliseconds of additional bloat added to the 90msec from my house to Fremont
is easy to ignore. Tacking a few milliseconds onto 16msec from Cloudflare's DNS
shows a significant delta - and worth reporting.
For example, here are ping times for various hosts from my house and (in
paren's from netperf.bufferbloat.net in Atlanta):
* flent-fremont.bufferbloat.net ~90msec (~53msec)
* netperf.bufferbloat.net ~40msec (~30 microseconds - Duh :-)
* gstatic.com and 188.8.131.52 (Google's all-purpose host and DNS) is ~21-22msec
* Cloudflare's 184.108.40.206 (anycast address, I suspect) is ~16msec (< 300
So my preference would be to have a way to tell Flent to use ping times from
another host besides the -H host.
