Is there a tool I can download or purchase to produce heavy burst loads for testing switches? Multicast loads preferred.
We have a number of 3560G switches that are dropping packets under heavy burst loads. We confirmed with support that the buffers in the ASICs are not capable of handling the high number of packets that come through some of our interfaces every few minutes.
We're considering replacing these with other models and would like to test the "other" models with test loads before we purchase them.
Thanks in advance
