Can someone with ixia experience pls advice how best to perform this test?
Attached is the test setup.
I'm trying to use ixia to generate packets to flood the ethernet module of the router.
-should i have each of the 3750<>2811 ports be setup with individual vlans?
-how do i define a closed loop traffic from an ixia perspective. If i were to use port 6/4, how do i configure ixia to treat this port as "closed traffic port"
for testing purposes it is better to have permit statements in the ACLs so that packet losses can be seen as a sign of performance troubles.
As I wrote we did in this way and the position of the permit statement that matches has an effect on the cpu usage.
You can also use deny statements but this means that you would see 100% packet loss in any case.
Hope to help
