hi guys,
I am trying to experiment with netem .First i created a netem as below on a Client PC

# tc qdisc add dev eth0 root netem delay 5ms

Then using using UDP sockets programming i transmitted UDP packets with a payload of 4k (mtu set to 6144 to avoid fragmentation ) to a server pc. I gave a delay of 3ms between socket writes.At the server i verified the timing by toggling a parallel port when receiving a UDP packet.But the period was 3ms though i expected it to be 5ms.....but a ping was giving a RTT of 5ms!!!!

Wud love any suggestions on this prob and any other way of verifying netem ......
