I am running some benchmarks using UDPcast for a paper, and I wanted to confirm that I’ve understood the --fec argument. Here is what I’ve written:
> The --fec argument specifies how many “stripes” each chunk of data is split into, the number of FEC packets included with each stripe, and the number of data packets in each stripe. For example, with --fec 8x16/128 each chunk of data will be sent in 8 stripes, and each stripe will have 16 FEC packets and 128 data packets.
Hoping someone can confirm I’ve understood things correctly, or can correct me.
