Comment (by acute):

 Hi! I developed and used his mode extensively to test out out changes to
 Onionperf code, but also to perform research measurements with a more
 limited scope (e.g for comparing different pluggable transports on
 different types of networks).
 Oneshot mode:
  * has no pause at the start
  * terminates after one 5MB download

 It can be used for:
  * testing
  * measurements in simulated networks
  * scripting and automating custom measurements with variable parameters
 This was written for an academic research project where it was primarily
 used, but other research projects (like the scaling project) could also
 benefit from this. Having a configurable number of downloads before
 Onionperf shuts down would be very nice, and so would supporting different
 sizes of download.

 Having an initial configurable pause is a great start. It is also
 important that oneshot mode shuts down after completing (and a new
 measurement can be started, e.g after changing some parameters, as part of
 a script).
 Hope this helps in understanding the mode a little bit better!
