What is it?

Jamming

Things will get better

Wowie  Zowie!

So many variables

How can you make

sense of it all?

What will get in the way?

Infrastructure

adds                  of latency to the average packet (500b)

(Noction: Network latency and its effect on application performance)

Distributed Synthetic Performance Testing
