I'll get to queues eventually.  Right now I precede this pipe with a pipe that
reports overall statistics for tcp/udp/other and one that develops statistics
and applies 128kbps bw limits on a per source host basis.  All pipes are
sequential.

Traffic is multiple simultaneous connections (outbound http from 20 to 30
webservers).

Yes, when I do this with an 8 sec delay to reading, I sometimes catch a
dropped packet.  Calculated bw is ~200kbps.  After some minutes it goes to the
1% level and stays there.

Yes, everything seems to be consistent and counts match closely.

It's not so much a problem but that I am curious.  And, I still don't
understand the significance of the ip addresses/ports shown in the single
bucket pipe?

Thanks for the response.
