The Cosmic Background Bufferbloat Detector

This is currently:

An attempt to leverage the ntp protocol to detect bufferbloat by measuring the difference between origin and destination timestamps, over time, over large sample sets of the sparse data generated by the low level of ntp background information… by looking closely at what is currently being rejected by NTP as NOISE.

There may well be a clear bufferbloat signature - and trendline - we can extract from this.

See the for what remains to be done.
