It was mentioned, that packet loss is not expected when nstreme is used (or at least I understood it this way :)
However, I get consistent packet loss of 1-2% in a 14 hop link (example). The latency is not very high so I expect that none of the links overloads. Routers are ~40-50% loaded, which seems typical when this protocol is enables (700-800 MHz C3 with 2-4 Atheros interfaces).
585 packets transmitted, 568 packets received, 2% packet loss
round-trip min/avg/max = 20.131/79.849/551.363 ms
I can see packet loss when pinging the next hop router (at times).
What is causing packet loss with this protocol? Where to look at for improving packet loss?
