# 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.
