FastUDPFlows Element Documentation

NAME

FastUDPFlows -- Click element; creates packets flows with static UDP/IP/Ethernet headers

SYNOPSIS

FastUDPFlows(RATE, LIMIT, LEN,

 SRCETH, SRCIP,N<>
 DSTETH, DSTIP,N<>
 FLOWS, FLOWSIZE [, CHECKSUM, ACTIVE])

Ports: no inputs, 1 output
Processing: pull
Drivers: linuxmodule
Package: linuxmodule (core)

DESCRIPTION

FastUDPFlows is a benchmark tool. At initialization time, FastUDPFlows creates FLOWS number of UDP/IP packets of length LENGTH (min 60), with source ethernet address SRCETH, source IP address SRCIP, destination ethernet address DSTETH, and destination IP address DSTIP. Source and destination ports are randomly generated. The UDP checksum is calculated if CHECKSUM is true; it is true by default. Each time the FastUDPFlows element is called, it selects a flow, increments the reference count on the skbuff created and returns the skbuff object w/o copying or cloning. Therefore, the packet returned by FastUDPFlows should not be modified. FastUDPFlows sents packets at RATE packets per second. It will send LIMIT number of packets in total. Each flow is limited to FLOWSIZE number of packets. After FLOWSIZE number of packets are sent, the sort and dst port will be modified. After FastUDPFlows has sent LIMIT packets, it will calculate the average send rate (packets per second) between the first and last packets sent and make that available in the rate handler. By default FastUDPFlows is ACTIVE.

ELEMENT HANDLERS

count (read-only)
Returns the total number of packets that have been generated.
rate (read/write)
Returns or sets the RATE parameter.
reset (write)
Reset and restart.
active (write)
Change ACTIVE

EXAMPLES

 FastUDPFlows(100000, 500000, 60,

 1:1:1:1:1:1, 2.0.0.2, 1234,
 100, 10)
