[pulseaudio-discuss] Diagnosing clicks and pops during playback via native-protocol-tcp

I am using module-native-protocol-tcp and module-tunnel-sink to stream
audio from server A to server B.
There are three wired home routers between A and B. All links are 100
Network traffic is light. CPU load is light. Both servers are
running Ubuntu 20.04. Each server plays audio via its own USB DAC.
There are no other known audio issues.
I suspect network timing jitter is causing some TCP packets to arrive
"late", causing the clicks and pops.
There are no clicks or pops when I play music locally on A or B.
What is the best way to diagnose suspected tunnel underflows?
Is there a way to create (or increase the size of?) a buffer in the tunnel?
I have considered trying RTP instead of native, but I have not done so yet.
