Peeking Under the Hood¶
This showcase demonstrates that the scheduling and traffic shaping modules can work outside the context of a network node. Doing so may facilitate assembling and validating specific complex scheduling and traffic shaping behaviors which can be difficult to replicate in a complete network.
The network contains three independent packet sources which are connected to a single asynchronous traffic shaper using a packet multiplexer.
The three sources generate the same stochastic traffic. The traffic shaper is driven by an active packet server module with a constant processing time.
