I am looking for multiple pieces of software to test the performance of one of my firewalls. The software in question needs to be compatible with Linux but other than that, I don't have many requirements.
Here is what I have discovered so far:
Throughput: iperf and netperf appear to be very popular in this category. Is there anything better or more realistic out there?
Latency: I have read that hrping provides accurate results for RTD.
Jitter: I've yet to find any software package that specifically mesasures jitter.
Are there any better alternatives to what I have mentioned above? I have read that NetFlow and its variations are good for measuring some of these metrics, but is there anything better?
