[B.A.T.M.A.N.] Recover in case of node fail

Hi guys,

I'm trying to make a study of various protocols for WMN and one of
them is BATMAN. One the tests is the time to recovery in case of node

I have a topology with 4 routers with 2 possible paths:

For the test i'm doing a continuous ping from A to C (level 3 ping)
and shut down the router that forward the message (i.e B or C). In
this test BATMAN can't recover the PING. But when i cancel the ping
and check the Originators table (batctl o) the route is refreshed. And
when i try to ping again it works.

Is any limitation in BATMAN for recovery in a continuous PING?
Has anyone done this type of test and values obtained?

Thanks in advance.

Best Regards
