Thus there can be nospecific latency, just as there can be no specific per-user throughput.
It's not pretty, but works: #!/bin/bash TAP0="tap0" TAP1="tap1" # use different subnets IP0="10.0.31.1" IP1="10.0.32.1" # some fake ips in yet different subnets FAKE0="10.1.31.1" FAKE1="10.1.32.1" ip tuntap add dev $TAP0 mode tap; ip tuntap add dev $TAP1 mode tap; ip addr add $IP0 dev $TAP0; ip addr add $IP1 dev $TAP1; ifconfig $TAP0 inet $IP0 netmask ...
