Valkyrie2889

Performance Benchmarking L2 LAN switches Valkyrie2889 makes it easy to accurately benchmark the performance of Layer 2 LAN switches according to RFC 2889.

software

Valkyrie2889 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

Valkyrie2889 also supports Errored Frames Filtering (with the exception of the “Dribble Bit Errors” and “Alignment Errors” tests).

TOP FEATURES

  • Create, edit and execute test configurations using Xena test equipment according to RFC 2889
  • Configure and enable many of the test-types defined in RFC 2889
  • Supports L2-3 testing and either IPv4 or IPv6
  • Flexibly define protocol layers (Ethernet, VLANs, IP, UDP, etc.)
  • Assign separate protocol layer definitions to each test port
  • Extensive configuration options to fine-tune the tests
