Top Forums Shell Programming and Scripting Choosing VPN server based on server response times Post 303041733 by Neo on Tuesday 3rd of December 2019 12:00:13 AM
Seems like a lot of unnecessary work to me.

Network response times can change from minute to minute, based on network conditions you have no control over.

You are better off to pick the "best" access point geographically close to you (initially), measured by the number of hops normally (and maybe bandwidth / delay), and not try to over optimize, in my opinion.

Sorry, not to be more encouraging.

Of course, if you want to "over optimize", go for it.

DUMMYNET(4)						   BSD Kernel Interfaces Manual 					       DUMMYNET(4)

NAME
dummynet -- traffic shaper, bandwidth manager and delay emulator DESCRIPTION
The dummynet system facility permits the control of traffic going through the various network interfaces, by applying bandwidth and queue size limitations, implementing different scheduling and queue management policies, and emulating delays and losses. The user interface for dummynet is implemented by the ipfw(8) utility, so please refer to the ipfw(8) manpage for a complete description of the dummynet capabilities and how to use it. Kernel Options The following options in the kernel configuration file are related to dummynet operation: IPFIREWALL enable ipfirewall (required for dummynet) IPFIREWALL_VERBOSE enable firewall output IPFIREWALL_VERBOSE_LIMIT limit firewall output DUMMYNET enable dummynet operation HZ set the timer granularity Generally, the following options are required: options IPFIREWALL options DUMMYNET options HZ=1000 # strongly recommended Additionally, one may want to increase the number of mbuf clusters (used to store network packets) according to the sum of the bandwidth- delay products and queue sizes of all configured pipes. SEE ALSO
setsockopt(2), if_bridge(4), ip(4), ipfw(8), sysctl(8) HISTORY
The dummynet facility was initially implemented as a testing tool for TCP congestion control by Luigi Rizzo <luigi@iet.unipi.it>, as described on ACM Computer Communication Review, Jan.97 issue. Later it has been modified to work at the IP and bridging levels, integrated with the ipfw(4) packet filter, and extended to support multiple queueing and scheduling policies. BSD
