npag is a packet generation and performance mesaurement tool. Unlike many other free available tools npag is capable of generating TCP, UDP, ICMP, ICMPv6, IPv4 and IPv6 trac where the frames can totaly be defined by the user. Network devices must be able to receive tracc from multiple sources. To take account of this fact npag provides multiple parallel streams. npag has the capability of measuring both UDP and TCP performance. It is not only possible to measure the maximum troughput but it is also possible to change the sending rate of each sending entity during a measurement. Beside measuring the throughput npag can determine the latancy and packet loss. Specifying a packet header and stream description can be very complex. To facilitate the specification npag provides an easy to lean skript language. By this means it is easy to write a complex description with a simple comand file.
