Sorry ... but I'm still not really clear on this.
What is the detail that I'm losing in the packet loss/latency data by
sending fewer pings?
Is it basically just that [for example] a single dropped packet will
count for 20% packet loss with only 5 probes being sent, vs only 5% with
20 being sent ... or is there something else involved that I'm still not
quite understanding here?
