Set smoothing time to
s. The smoothing time determines with what intervals
will try to let the application transceive data. Smaller values will
result in a more continuous (smooth) session, while larger values may
produce bursts in the sending and receiving data. Smaller values (0.1
- 1 s) are ideal for interactive applications while slightly larger
values (1 - 10 s) are better for applications that need bulk transfer.
This parameter is customizable on a per-application basis via
The default value is 5 s.
Set smoothing length to
KB. The smoothing length is a fallback of the smoothing time. If
cannot meet the requested smoothing time, it will instead fall back on
KB of data. The default value is 10 KB.

more aggressive, but may also result in over shaping. The default
