The explanation makes sense.
I think that the term "bursty" traffic confuses me and others.
Token bucket sounds more "bursty" to me as the output varies - sometimes a few frames are sent, sometimes many
frames are sent at once if there are sufficient tokens to do so.
Leaky bucket on the other hand sounds more "consistent/stable" to me.

Here is how I think about it:
For leaky bucket algorithm, you can pour water into the bucket in different rate. If you accidentally
pour too much water at on time, as long as it doesn't spill out, the bucket will hold it and drop them
out at constant speed. So that's why it allows bursty traffic.
For token bucket algorithm, token is instead dropped to the bucket at constant rate. Data can only
"leak out" when there is available token in the bucket. If there are multiple available tokens, then
multiple data can be sent out.So it allows output rate vary.

The leaky bucket algorithm enables an application to generate bursty traffic (high volume,
for a short period) without saturating the network.
I want to know why leaky bucket can generate bursty traffic in a short time?
According to my understanding, leaky bucket turns unstable flow into stable flow, and
changes output rate to constant. Therefore, I think leaky bucket cannot generate bursty
traffic.
