  • Software Features
  • Hardware Features
Supports real-world protocols:
  • Layer 2: Raw-Ethernet.
  • 802.1Q VLANs.
  • PPPoE: Integrated PPPoE support.
  • Layer 3: IPv4, IPv6, UDP/IP, IGMP Multicast UDP, TCP/IP.
  • Layer 3: Armageddon accellerated UDP/IP (line speed on appropriate hardware).
  • Layer 4: TELNET, PING, DNS, SMTP, NMAP (via add-on script).
  • File-IO: NFSv3, NFSv4, CIFS, iSCSI.
Supports up to 1000 concurrent TCP connections with base license package.
The CT503-10G is able to generate up to 10Gbps on each port, depending on protocols mix and speed of the network under test. Supports at least 500 VoIP (SIP, RTP) calls if appropriate licenses are purchased. The portable chassis configurations may run at different speeds than the 1U or 2U rackmount systems.
Hardware supports over 30,000 TCP connections on a single machine, but base license package includes licenses for 1000 connections. Contact sales for additional licenses.
Supports real-world compliance with ARP protocol.
Supports ToS (QoS) settings for TCP/IP and UDP/IP connections.
Uses publicly available Linux, Windows and Solaris networking stack for increased standards compliance.
Utilizes libcurl for FTP, HTTP and HTTPS (SSL), TFTP and SCP protocols.
Supports file system test endpoints (NFS, CIFS, and iSCSI file systems, too!). File system mounts can use the virtual interface feature for advanced testing of file server applications.
Supports custom command-line programs, such as telnet, SMTP, and ping.
Comprehensive traffic reports include: Packet Transmit Rate, Packet Receive Rate, Packet Drop %, Transmit Bytes, Receive Bytes, Latency, Jitter, various Ethernet driver level counters, and much more.
Supports generation of reports that are ready to be imported into your favorite spread-sheet.
Allows packet sniffing and network protocol decoding with the integrated Wireshark protocol sniffer.
GUI runs as Java application on Linux, Solaris and Microsoft Operating Systems (among others).
GUI can run remotely, even over low-bandwidth links to accommodate the needs of the users.
Central management application can manage multiple units, tests, and testers simultaneously.
Includes easy built-in scripting for iterating through rates and packet sizes, with automated reporting. Also supports scriptable command line interface (telnet) which can be used to automate test scenarios. Perl libraries and example scripts are provided!
Automatic discovery of LANforge data generators simplifies configuration of LANforge test equipment.
LANforge traffic generation/management software is supported on Linux, Solaris and MS Windows.
