Re: Questions about Internet Packet Losses

So you'll note that there are very clear spikes at 552 and 576 total packet
size.  Further, note that the curve falls off _extremely_ rapidly.  From
that, I argue that case (2) _cannot_ be the case because any type of random
distribution would be much smoother.

(2) is a random distribution plus some spikes, plus some modality due to
TCP's that can only generate packets of <= N bytes for different popular
MSS's.  So I think it still works (but will save more detailed analysis
till later ....).

2) What OS is using a 512 MSS?
