yes i undestand the difference now .
Now i want to give a rough (really rough)  estimation of throughput via
this route.
I want to use a fixed throughput value combiend with path metric since
the domain_metric_out key doesnt seem to represent the value correct?.
Are there specifacation about the bounderys of the path metric?
