# This script runs a bwctl test and, concurrently runs the 'ss' (show socket command)
# at regular intervals during the test.  It is recommended the 'ss' interval be 0.1 or
# or 0.2 (seconds) 
# The syntax of the command are:
# tcptest <target bwctl server> <length of test in sec> <'ss' frequency>
# The results are stored in two files in the user's home directory
# 1. tcp_test-<date/time of test>-<target host name>.results
# 2. stat_changes-<date/time of test>-<target host name>.results
# File 1 is a list of the 'ss' results, which can be graphed 
# (with the use of a spreadsheet) for ease of interpretation.
# File 2 shows the difference between 'netstat -s' immediately before and after
# the bwctl test.  This is particularly useful for spotting TCP retransmissions etc
