I am wanting to test our qos design behavior in a lab using two 3750x switches that are trunked together each with a laptop connected to a switch port. I would like to create traffic across the trunk link so that i can observe what traffic is dropped in the queue when congestion occurs. I am having a hard time creating enough traffic on the link to drop packets.
what is the best way to create traffic just for this purpose? Should i change some key configuration parameters (ie interface bandwidth) to make it easier to reach a point of conjestion with less traffic?
