Subject: testing bandwidth of big internet pipes Date: Tue, Aug 05, 2003 at 06:26:17PM +0200 Quoting Arjan Lugtenberg (firstname.lastname@example.org):
> We as a Dutch network provider deliver also ATM lines and other big internet pipes for several big company's over here.
> At the moment we are looking for a good badwidth test within your network to test the line and to see if the customer gets what he has asked/paid for.
> sometimes it happens we deliver a big ATM line (for instance) and after a couple of hours the customer complains about the actual line rate.
> These problems has to be tested at the point of delivery so that the customer and ourselves are convinced the right line is configured in the ATM backbone.
> The test has to be done in such a way that a full T1 can be pulled to the max.
> What kind of bandwidth tests do other people on the list use for these big lines?
> Are there any documents written about such kind of tests?
> Please let me know.
