how high would you estimate the software jiiter is on the R1?
just curious, if Anti-Spike ever comes out the software jitter most likely cannot be eliminated by it
It's hard to tell how much jitter it introduces, depends what the machine is doing at the time.
Nope cannot eliminate software jitter. Can reduce it by having a faster machine or more cores. Hardware eliminates it though as it doesn't even touch the kernel gets processed on the data plane.
