Four Players on Console
The following section discusses individual server to client and client to server flows when four players are present on a client console.
Packet Inter-Arrival TimeAs seen in Figure 16, the client to server inter-arrival time is once again 120ms with four players on a console. Figure 17 clearly shows that traffic from the server to the client has inter-arrival times of 0ms, 20ms, 40ms, 60ms, 80ms, 100ms and 120ms.

Packet LengthWe can see from Figure 18 that four players on a client console results in the client sending packets 70bytes, 78bytes, 92bytes, 116bytes, 140bytes and 158bytes long.

Figures 19 and 20 show the difference between the server sending packets to a console (with four players attached) in a game with eight players and nine players total respectively. As before, a larger number of total players results in more peaks (larger variance in packet lengths sent).
