    @Question about choosing mesurement tools@


    Hi all:
    I want to measure a software router's performace when the incoming packet rate is fluctuating, while it seems that a lot of measurement tools like iperf, netperf, UDPmon only provides fixed rate traffic testing,so is there any measurement tool that can generate customized pattern traffic??? Thanks very much.

    I could think of a tool like aircrack-ng. See the aireplay submodule. Of course this tool is suited only for wireless devices. But google gives you many hits: replay packets - Google Search

    You did not specify which packets you have there, nore the involved physical layer, nore did you specific what your "pattern" is. So I assumed you want it as customizable as possible and assumed further it may be wireless traffic, which aireplay suits pretty well. But google gives also good results:

    replay packets - Google Search
    replay ethernet packets - Google Search
    replay token ring packets - Google Search
    packet generators - Google Search

    Greetings,
