IP SLA Support Question

Hello There,

Please forgive this rather tedious post, but if anyone has a quick answer that can help me, I would be most grateful.

In a lab environment I need to be able to carry out some basic IP SLA tests such as ICMP echo / HTTP connect etc. 

I currently have a super old Cisco 2900 XL (2924) running flash:c2900XL-h2s-mz-112.8.2-SA6.bin.

This device does not support IP SLA commands nor the RTTMON mib (it seems).  I have done some searching about upgrading the IOS to a level that may support IP SLA, but I guess unless I go to an ENTERPRISE IOS I will only have the ability to configure IP SLA repsonder and not agent.

I get the impression that infact it may be a step too far for this old switch and therefore I was thinking of the 2600 switch which seems to support IP SLA.  (as always, cost is key!!)

Would I be able to get at least responder working on the 2900 XL and get a new device that will be able to act as an agent, or do you think I need to purchase 2 new devices.

Any advice would be gratefully received.

Thank you
