Hello Experts,

Can some recommend a few ip network traffic generators please.

So far, the best I seen is LanTraffic v2

However, its too expensive.


Cheers

Carlton

Hi

You could give a look at traffic which is licenced under the GPL licence.

Patrick,

Your suggestion is ok, however it won't test throughput...

Depends what is your purpose and how large of the throughput you want test.

For link monitoring, you may consider to deploy some script with iperf, ttcp, etc. tools.

For troubleshooting, NC.exe (Netcat), TcpTestTool & UdppTestTool I have tried before.

You might want to take a look at Ostinato . It's OpenSource and is both a packet- as a traffic generator (up to 10Gb ).
