Parameters we care about:

(1) probe stream length: 80/360 (2) valid excursions: 4/8 (3) gap threshold: 1000 (4) smoothing algorithm used after spike to spike averaging: arithmatic or exponential smoothingTo remove the impact of algorithms in actual experiments, we run rapid_v0.9.3 version from smithfd-rapid22 to smithfd-rapid21. Each set of experiment was run for five times.

**Spike to spike smoothing: ** a spike is defined as a burst followed by a series of small values of recvgaps until the next burst occurs. A burst at index i should satisfy: recvgap[i] > recvgap[i-1]+30us && recvgap[i] > recvgap[i+1]+20us. Record the total size of recvgaps and the number of pruned elements in the last spike of a pstream, and use these values to calculate the spike-smoothing recvgaps for the several small values in the beginning of the next pstream.

**ABest algorithm: ** Find excursions the same way as before, but only count the last excursion as a valid excursion in the pstream.
