I am looking for performance test methodology for ethernet-based
circuits. These ethernet circuits can be: dark-fiber, l2circuit
(martini), l2vpn (kompella), vpls or ng-vpls. Sometimes, the ethernet
circuit can be a mix of these technologies, like below:
CPE<-> metro-e<-> l2circuit<-> l2vpn<-> l2circuit<-> metro-e<-> CPE
The goal is verify the performance end-to-end.
I am looking for tools that can check at least the following parameters:
- out-of-order delivery
At this moment I have been used IPerf to achieve these results. But I
would like to check if there is some test devices that can be used in
situations like that to verify the ethernet-based circuit performance.
The objective of these tests is to verify the signed SLAs of each
circuit before the customer start to use it.
I checked all MEF specifications and I only find something related to
performance for Circuit Emulation over Metro-E (which is not my case).
Appreciate your comments.
