# Script for max single flow performance
# - If correctly tuned[1], single CPU 10G wirespeed small pkts is possible[2]
# Using pktgen "burst" option (use -b $N)
# - To boost max performance
# - Avail since: kernel v3.18
# * commit 38b2cf2982dc73 ("net: pktgen: packet bursting via skb->xmit_more")
# - This avoids writing the HW tailptr on every driver xmit
# - The performance boost is impressive, see commit and blog [2]
# Notice: On purpose generates a single (UDP) flow towards target,
# reason behind this is to only overload/activate a single CPU on
# target host. And no randomness for pktgen also makes it faster.
# Tuning see:
# [1]
# [2]
