Re: Network Traffic Generator

Hi ADITYA

Can you find the below?.

1- For traffic generation Windows is pretty bad, especially UDP traffic  at any decent rates.

2-I would recommend the IP SLA feature in IOS to simulate VoIP and the statistics it generates are very good.

3- You can also check the following also :

You can also try SIPp (http://sipp.sourceforge.net/). I've just started using it and it seems a capable tool, but it's fairly complex...

Hi

I use iperf which can be used to generate traffic. You can specify settings like tcp or udp, packet size, time etc.

It's a simple tool that is run on a source windows machine as a client and the destination windows machine as the server and you simply send traffic between the 2.

Thanks, Carl Ratcliffe
