Hi Jason,

It might be that the good TCP_RR results are due to the large number of sessions (50-250). Can you test it also with small number of sessions?

Could it be that since the CPUs are not busy they are available for immediate handling of the packets (little batching)? In such scenario the CPU utilization is not really interesting. What will happen on a busy machine?
