If you really want to test raw performance, why not just enable the chargen

per second :)

The tests that I've run in the past wouldn't support your statement.  In
most cases, people leave those ports disabled, and appropriately so since
the routers have better things to do, and don't echo or generate traffic
nearly as quickly as the line rate would support.
