The goal of what I am doing is to test some network convergence impact
in a lab with two PCs with windows (Can't run Linux, it would be
easier if I could) and switches and/or routers in between.
So, I thought there must be some simple utility out there that can
just start spewing out UDP packets to the other side at a certain time
interval and I can look at packet loss via what arrives on the other
side with wireshark on the PC.
I found hping but it seems to be outdated and I can't get it to work
on my windows boxes.
Anyone have any suggestions?
1) http://robert.rsa3.com/traffic.html (I haven't actually run this
myself, but it's description seems to fit the bill)
2) http://sourceforge.net/projects/iperf/ (iPerf in client mode can spew
UDP packets in configurable bursts)
