Hello again Markus,
I would like details about the topology you had:

Here you are creating a network with every node reachable from every node,
so we can compare our performances.

Here, you seem to speak of a network where olsr are isolated, I really
need precise figures to be sure we are comparing similar things, about the
case of the 2000 lxc running olsr:

Could you reach each node with each other node with a ping ?

And also: how many hops where necessary for the extreme nodes to reach

In my case all pings where good and reactive and the biggest number of
hops was around 20.
