Hierarchy Level


Configure the maximum observed time difference between the arrival of media data and the drain of media data. The delay factor suggests the minimum size of the buffer required at the next downstream node. As a stream progresses, the variation of the delay factor indicates packet bunching or packet gaps (jitter). Greater delay factor values also indicate that more network latency is needed to deliver a stream because of the need to pre-fill a receive buffer before beginning the drain to guarantee no underflow.

The remaining statements are explained separately. See CLI Explorer.
