Network IP traffic packet generators are used for network performance testing under maximum or partial throughput conditions. Network health can be analyzed by network traffic measurement in a testbed network, using an IP network traffic generator such as IP Traffic Test and Measure. The traffic generator sends packets, often with a unique packet identifier, making it possible to keep track of the packet delivery in the network. Network impairment simulation (emulation) is a technique for testing the performance of real applications over a virtual network. The aim is to assess performance, predict the impact of change, analyze impairment conditions or otherwise optimize technology decision-making. Measurements usually focus on simulation of conditions like delay, jitter, latency, dropped packets and limited bandwidth.
Test and Measure is a traffic generator/analyzer for IP networks using different protocols:UDP (User Datagram Protocol)TCP (Transmission Control Protocol)ICMP (Internet Control Message Protocol)and a powerful measurement tool for network Quality of Service (QoS).
