Well, it is interesting that you note that.
I read the PDF. One thing that struck me was that the settings for OLSR
were such that OLSR used *full flooding*. (MPR 7 etc)
That is *exactly* NOT what it is meant to do!
yes, the MPR idea was a good idea, in theorie.
as i heard, it did not work out at all and made the mesh even more unstable.
i think, the problem was in the way of selecting MPR, but i don't
remember exactly, elektra did a very good explanation that time, some 2
or 3 years ago.
it is quite sad to see that knowledge lost in the current OLSR developer
elektra, could you be so nice and enlight aaron on the topic of problems
with the MPR selection?
So I must object to the objectivity of the study.
Basically the study was comparing an elephant and a wale
Well.. both are great ideas :) But ... they do live in different terrain
and under different assumptions :)))
please calm your temper.
