Hi all,


Just trying to understand the usefulness of TTCP(test TCP) utility. Currently the challenge we are facing as a service provider is testing the throughput of a circuit before handing over the same to customer. IF TTCP do that it would be great. I have some queries which are listed below.


1. Any limitation or risk with TTCP?

2. Which all IOS platforms support TTCP

3. How to implement the same.


Thanks in advance

This URL from CCO provides some good details on the use of TTCP.

In general, the risk is that it is considered "unsupported". It also is not consistently available on all router platforms and within all IOS trains.


Otherwise, it is a quick and easy utility to use. I've used it to get basic feedback on the performance of a WAN connection.
