I'd like to hammer our network to see how it goes under a load.
We are mostly NT but we have a Sun Unix box running Solaris.  I am sure someone once told me about a command called 'spray', but I can't remember if it was NT or Unix, or where tofind it on the Internet.  Does anyone know about it, and if it is free, and if it needs to be compiled, and what parameters it takes .... !
Thank you!

 'spray' actually comes with Solaris !  So, you should have it - try /usr/sbin/spray

  The parameters are like so -

  spray host [-t nettype] [-l lnth] [-c cnt] [-d delay]

and

  man spray

will give you all the information you need.
