Traffic Generator / QoS Testing

Hi

I'm looking for some (preferably free) tools to assist with testing QoS policies - anyone got any good suggestions??

Things that will generate background traffic, or that can generate simulated voice calls etc... (PC-based preferably, I'm familiar with IOS IP SLA)

Thanks

Aaron

Re: Traffic Generator / QoS Testing

Try using the IOS SLA tools inherent in the Cisco IOS. The 12.4 versions have really good tools.

Re: Traffic Generator / QoS Testing

Hello Aaron,

I did not try it myself, but have a look at

http://sourceforge.net/projects/pacgen/

which is a Linux based packet generator. Someone told me it would be useful for this purpose.

There are also other tools like UDPFlooder, which are freeware, but usually found around the more doubtful web pages dedicated to network analysis ... and Hacking. Use at your own risk.

Hope this helps! Please rate all posts.

Regards, Martin
