Hi Amin,

As I mentioned in the other email, you really need to add additional processing logic in your custom forwarding strategy, otherwise it is no different which Signature is in data packet.

first two number columns in l3-rate-tracer.txt are estimated "rates", that is why the numbers are not integer (e.g., average number of satisfied interests per second).  If you need actual numbers, you can use other two numbers which represent absolute number of packets (and kilobytes) in the last second for the parameter.

Right? but I have interest satisfy rate same as when we do not change signature field. what is wrong?
