udp packet flooding

Sun Oct 31, 2010 6:00 pm

I am wondering if there is an easy way to generate udp packets to stress test my backhauls without purchasing very expensive software. Thanks

try n use multiple torrent sessions without ne filters n session caps. if the thruput is good, u r up with it.

u can even try streaming video/voice uploads. Link ruggedness as per my exp r best tested in these circumstances

the reason i wanted to test with udp packet flooding is because i think 2 of my links which r of another brand go down ocassionally and i've been told it is due to udp packet flooding but i was wanting to verify this.

thanks
