[OLSR-users] olsrd-0.5.0: LQ larger than 1.0

I didn't uncomment LinkQualityWinSize, so it must be default value 10 for
all nodes in domain.

I do not see correlation between packet loss reported by application, and
packet loss reported by olsrd. I created congestion between 2 olsr nodes
causing 80% UDP packet loss ( reported by application). That doesn't seem to
change "Hello" packet loss reported by olsrd for that link. From another
side, I see "Hello" packet loss on the link where application ( and iPerf )
don't report any packet loss. Is there any way I can make olsrd packet loss
reporting more accurate?

Did you check the setup for not using different HelloInterval´s a/o
LinkQualityWinSize in the same network segment / broadcast-domain?

Did see myself ETX < 1  due to LinkQualityMult >1, even w/ older olsr
that´s quiet "logical", useful in the sense of "intentionally prefer link as
long it
