Delay variation  (Jitter) is calculated during tests according to RFC 3550 method:

Ji = Ji-1 + (|Di-1,i| - Ji-1)/16

  • Ji – measured delay variation at i-th iteration.
  • Di-1,i – difference of receiving times of two consecutive test requests.

Di-1,i = (Ri-1 – Si-1) - (Ri - Si)

R – test request generation time,  S – test request receive time.

During U7-type (UDP-echo) test the variation of round-trip time is measured, using the local time of originating IQM agent.
During U0-type test the variations of one-way trip delays are measured in both directions. Originating agent’s local time is used for test timestamp, receiving agent’s local time is used for packet delivery time.
