[Olsr-users] Link Cost figures
Wed May 13 16:07:15 CEST 2009
That's very useful to know which figure represents what - in this case
the node 'dropped off' the network after serveral weeks of
uninterrupted running and with no configuration changes. At least now
I know which direction packets are being lost in...
Quoting Markus Kittenberger <(spam-protected)>:
> LQ/NLQ of 1.00/1.00 means that 100% of the packets sent by the neighbour are
> received (LQ), and 100% of the packets this routers olsr sent itself where
> received by the neighbour (NLQ)
> an NLQ of 0.0 means that no packets are received, which of course is an
> unuseable link
> maybe the firewall on the other rotuer drops all the packets?
