Delaying Packets

The PacketDelayer module delays packets for a configured amount of time.

In this example network, packets are produced periodically by an active packet source (ActivePacketSource). The produced packets are delayed (PacketDelayer) for a random amount of time. Finally, the packets are pushed into a passive packet sink (PassivePacketSink).
