Could some share their opinion on how to go about testing a new CKT? I am looking for what commands should be used to send large amount of data to test response time, reliability of CKT,..ect.

Thanks in advance,

Continous pings with different packet sizes (at least 10000 pings) are valid tests for performance (response time and packet loss) of a new circuit. You should not have more than 1% packet loss (obviously I don't what response time would be acceptable). The only thing you can not perform from the router, is a stresstest (fully load the circuit and observe the performance under full load). This requires specialized equipment and software.

HTH, Thomas
