Hi All,

A friend is trying to stress a gig-E interface.
He doesn't have a SmartBits box, and is trying to use
BSD to generate lots of traffic.

How would you generate a traffic flood?

fping? chargen?  We need the best flodding possible.

And how would you set it up with the least latency?

If other FOSS  solutions are available, let me know.

Jim B.

PS- Yes this is a lab.  No we are not flooding the Net.
