    77At run-time Tmix "replays" the exchanges encoded in a set of connection vectors (or c-vecs).  The connection vectors are extracted from traffic captured on a real network link.    Since all of the traffic crossing a busy link cannot generally be replayed using a single pair of nodes, it is customary to split the connection vectors into N pairs of tcvec files.  If all of the traffic observed on a busy link cannot be simulated with just two nodes, what percentage of the traffic can we replay?  How many pairs of nodes do we need to use to simulate all the traffic?  It is exactly these questions that calibration seeks to answer.  Below we will walk through the process of determining how much traffic can be simulated by a single pair of nodes.
