Re: application: sends,receieves packets and logs everything wit


with a cisco router you could use SAA (service assurance agent). It will send defined packets to configured destinations at a rate configured. You can obtain the statistics and failures through SNMP and/or CLI.

For a full description of capabilities have a look at "Network Monitoring Using Cisco Service Assurance Agent"

In case you want a solely PC based solution have a look at "Network Monitoring"

There are a couple of tools (even freeware) which should be helpful.

Hope this helps! Please rate all posts.

thanks a lot Martin,

I read the document, SAA looks just what I am looking for but unfortunately it seems SAA works well for routers but not for switches :( I am gonna use the stuff for 4506 switches.

I hope will be my last stop :)
