Recovery time for Port - testing and discovery
Posted on 2006-07-17
I'm trying to figure out if there is a product or a method of testing I can do to determine how long 'before' a port times out. The scenario is a client application that uses and ODBC connection on port 1603 over a Internet connection, we'll say, to a listening database engine housed on a server over the WAN. I want to figure out how long before the application would disconnect in the event the internet 'bleeps' for a second, millisecond, etc... I want to know up until when the connection can recover. I you have the name of a testing tool/simulator or can describe a testing method(commands/utilities, priority, etc..) - that is what I'm looking for.
