32    help
33      This code is takes a wandering minstrel approach. Wander around the
34      different rates, singing wherever you can. And then, look at the
35      performance, and make a choice. Note that the wandering minstrel will
36      always wander in directions where he/she feels he/she will get paid
37      the best for his/her work.

40    bool "Use the SampleRate rate control algorithm"
41    help
42      SampleRate decides on the transmission bit-rate based on the past
43      history of performance; it keeps a record of the number of successive
44      failures, the number of successful transmits and the total transmission
45      time along with the destination for that bit-rate. Stale samples are
46      removed based on a EWMA windowing mechanism. If in the sampling
47      process, no successful acknowledgment is received or the number of
48      packets sent is multiple of 10 on a specific link, it transmits the
49      packet with the highest rate which has not failed 4 successive times.
50      Other than that it transmits packets at the rate which has the lowest
51      average transmission time.
