Alternate freeware for Ixload
can anyone tell me the difference between Ixia with Ix explorer and IxLoad.
Also please suggest me a good free alternate tool for IxLoad that can be combined with Ix explorer.
Re: Alternate freeware for Ixload
IxExplorer is the basic tool that comes with each Ixia equipment and IxOS. It has a limited set of features like creating network interfaces (with ip addresses) and simple traffic streams.
IxLoad requires IxOS to function and has a much more advanced functionality. With IxLoad you can simmulater thousands of http, ftp ( and much more) users to test servers. Also it can generate and send different types of specialised traffic through your network.
You cannot use any other tool (except the ones from Ixia) with IxExplorer. You also need Ixia hardware.
