The following section discusses aggregate flows to and from the server for the six games played.
Packet Inter-Arrival TimeThe following figures show the client to server aggregate flow for all six games. We can see that although the shape of the graphs differ, they are all approximately symmetrical about the 60ms mark.

We can see in Figure 27 that Game 1 server to client aggregate data has peaks at 0ms, 20ms, 60ms, 100ms and 120ms. This again corresponds to the server having only one player attached. As shown in Figure 28, Game 2 also has peaks at 40ms and 80ms as do all other server to client aggregate data graphs.

Packet LengthFigures 29 and 30 show the contrast in the number of peaks occuring in a three player game versus the number of peaks occuring in a nine player game for aggregate client to server data. Generally, as the overall number of players in the game increases, the number of different length packets also increases.

As seen in Figures 31, 32 and 33, as the total number of players increases, the number of peaks also increases, as does the spread of the peaks.
