Does any one have a favorite network stress test?
There are the usual benchmarks like ttcp, netbench, are there others?
NFS?


pktgen is good for testing/abusing drivers, below the IP stacks.

netperf is another for TCP/UDP stream and req/response
kind of stuff. There is support for sendfile, IPV6, etc.

thanks,
