The cmdline for this test is:
netperf -t TCP_CRR -c -C -l 300

The actual results are not 100% stable, here is the values of the 5
runs:

$ cat [0-4]/netperf.json 
{
  "netperf.Throughput_tps": [
    12674.061666666668
  ]
}{
  "netperf.Throughput_tps": [
    12705.6325
  ]
}{
  "netperf.Throughput_tps": [
    12621.97333333333
  ]
}{
  "netperf.Throughput_tps": [
    12604.785000000002
  ]
}{
  "netperf.Throughput_tps": [
    12664.158333333333
  ]

I suppose the way the stddev% is calculated by first calculating the
average and then compare the individual value with the average.
Fengguang, is this correct?

Thanks,
Aaron
