Re: software for network stress tests

There are some software tools for stress-testing available, like Pathchar, traceroute etc.

Here are some of these tools listed:

Re: software for network stress tests

I would also add a couple of others:

a) LoadRunner is great for more complex, scripted tests.. (very flexible tool but they dont give it away)

their site is http://www.mercuryinteractive.com/products/loadrunner/

2) TestTCP (http://www.netcordia.com/tools/tools.html)

Which I have found to be a useful tool for load testing. It does not have all the bells and whistles of LoadRunner, but its FREE!!
