I am attending Nvidia GTC conference this week, so no open source developer days meeting today.

There will be one in 2 weeks from today, as announced earlier (see description below).  Information to join that future meeting will be published some time before that meeting occurs in this (p4-dev) email list, and on the calendar of meetings here:

Date: April 2, 2024
Time: 11am-noon USA Pacific time
Speaker: Steffen Lindner
Subject: The P4TG traffic generator and analyzer

We present P4TG, an open-source P4-based traffic generator (TG) which runs on the programmable Intel Tofino ASIC. In generation mode, P4TG is capable of generating traffic up to 1 Tb/s split across 10x 100 Gb/s ports. Thereby it measures rates directly in the data plane. Generated traffic may be fed back from the output to the input ports, possibly through other equipment, to record packet loss, packet reordering, inter-arrival times (IATs) and sampled round trip times (RTTs). Further, it supports VLAN, QinQ, and MPLS encapsulation. In analysis mode, P4TG measures rates on the input ports and IATs, and forwards traffic through its output ports. Existing software or P4-based traffic generators either lack the required accuracy, do not support high data rates, or do not provide sufficiently integrated measurement capabilities.
