Measuring VPN throughput between RV098 & RV042
Posted on 2009-07-15
I've got a VPNs linking the subnets at my head office and several reremote offices. The head offis is running an RV082, and the branches are running RV042's, all with the latest firmware updates. The HO has a 5meg (up/down) fibre connection, the branches are on ADSL. Does anyone know of a good utility that I can use to accurately measure the data transfer rates back and forth down the tunnels from one subnet to another? I've heard of something called qcheck, but the download from the ixchariot.com website causes errors when i try to open it.
The purpose of this exercise is that i want to set up a NAS at one of our remote offices to use for off-site server backups, but I want to really push the bandwidth of the tunnels in a test first to see what the maximum data transfer rate will be.
