NQA probe operation procedure

An NQA probe operation involves the following steps:

  1. The NQA client constructs probe packets for the specified type of NQA test, and sends them to the peer device.

  2. Upon receiving the probe packets, the peer sends back responses with timestamps.

  3. The NQA client computes the network performance and service quality parameters, such as the packet loss rate and round-trip time based on the received responses.
