[Olsr-dev] olsrv2 test: handling change in link quality

I am planning to test OLSRv2 to see how the change in link quality 
affects the route calculation.

1. Any suggestion on simulating a degraded link (using tools such as 
ethtool, iptables, tc etc)?

I am using qemu-kvm virtual machines with emulated e1000 NICs for 
testing. I use iptables to introduce packet loss for testing. However, I 
am not sure whether any better way to do this.

2. Below is the list of plugins currently being used (default ones) by 
OLSRv2. Anything else to be enabled?

Static plugin: auto_ll4
Static plugin: cfg_compact
Static plugin: eth_listener
Static plugin: ff_dat_metric
Static plugin: layer2info
Static plugin: mpr
Static plugin: neighbor_probing
Static plugin: nhdpinfo
Static plugin: nl80211_listener
Static plugin: olsrv2info

Thank you.
