I'm currently doing an experiment using Mininet in which I've set up an OpenFlow SDN and I'm attempting to DDoS it using Hping3. I issue the Hping3 command and then kill it which overloads the network and then I send a ping between two other hosts within the network and my plan is to try and gauge how long it takes for the network to become fully functional again by seeing how long it takes for the ping packets to be successfully sent without interruption or heavy delays.
All of the above is fine but in the IO function all I've been able to show is packets per second between the host and destination devices, whereas as I'm trying to show how network connectivity is affected I'd ideally like to show either ping packets successfully sent by the source host or received by the destination host. Can this be achieved using the IO graph function?
Hopefully the above makes sense and thanks for any advice that can be given.

If you're looking for successful ICMP echo replies, then you might want to plot things a bit differently. For example:
You might even want to specifically plot ICMP request packets for which no response was found, e.g.:

I would define a filter "icmp.type == 8" on the graph, something like this screen capture shows: https://notalwaysthenetwork.files.wordpress.com/2014/04/screen-shot-2014-04-08-at-10-51-25-pm.png
