In terms of tests,

1) last time I was there we used the "netperf-wrapper" tests a lot.
Since last year,
toke's test suite has gained a gui and batching facilities, more tests
and more plots,
and the ability to easily compare multiple test runs in the same graph series.


(prereqs are a netperf 2.6 compiled with enable-demo on the
clients/servers, and and python-matplotlib, and py-qt4
 on the boxes doing the test generation, graphing and analysis)

There are several tests that are of interest on wifi behavior, notably
the "rrul" test tries to exercise 802.11e queues,
the rrul_be test that exercises just the be queues, and the various
"rtt_fair" tests try to examine bandwidth
and and latency to up to 4 separate targets.

2) examining bursty behavior

There are several tools in development in my


project for generating and looking at bursty data more closely. (Been
trying to get a grip on aggregation
behavior in particular)
