Xena2889 is a free application for benchmarking the performance of Layer 2 LAN switches. The following RFC 2889 test types are supported:

  • All Throughput and Forwarding rate tests (both Fully and Partially meshed)
  • Congestion Control
  • Address Caching Capacity
  • Address Learning Rate
  • Broadcast Frame Forwarding and Latency
  • Forward Pressure and Maximum Forwarding Rate

Xena2889 also supports Errored Frames Filtering (with the exception of the “Dribble Bit Errors” and “Alignment Errors” tests).
