Yuzz/Quan Transmission Efficiency Comparison

Brief experiment description, including use of GENI resources, and key results. Include interesting graphs, figures, etc.

The purpose of the Yuzz/Quan experiment was to determine the relative effectiveness of Yuzz transmission when compared to the Quan baseline. For our core network, we used a simple GENI configuration, comprising one virtual machines on each of two InstaGENI racks, interconnected at layer two. Twenty VMs on multiple ExoGENI racks were then connected at layer three, randomly transmitting Yuzz until saturation was achieved. As expected, Yuzz transmission effectiveness was less than half the Quan baseline in all tested configurations. We suspect that the difference is due to backups arising from the higher spikiness of Yuzz, and we hope to verify in a future experiment.
