Money isn't the issue here, but something affordable would be preferred. I need something that will let me simulate, http, https, SQL, MAPI SIP, etc from a server to an endpoint. This tool needs to output the results to some type of report on various stats, latency, jitter, etc if possible.
Not looking to run 18 freeware programs for results, I realize it will take a dedicated server and endpoints installed, this isn't a problem. Windows preferred if possible.
No, MRTG, Prtg, or any other ping/monitor program isn't it either. I have solarwinds Orion currently.
Management wants network group to run after changes to verify well known services work.
A network traffic stress test such as SolarWinds WAN killer doesn't quality since I need it to simulate multiple tcp ports and protocols.
