When running tests with OpenFlow I see the following transaction completion
times consistently for 127 and 255 switches with statistics on.

50% - 5-6 ms
75% - 7-8 ms
95% - 20-60 ms
98% - 100-160 ms

By using the 95th percentile number to determine transaction creation backpressure
we can safely increase our throughput without causing timeouts due to outliers.
