First Question - 1Mbps Traffic Generation Maximum...I'm not sure what I need to do to increase the maximum packet generation rate ... in the Ostinato UI, no matter how I configure my streams - I can select bit rate of 6Mbps all day, but then when it is actually performing traffic generation, 1Mbps..
Is there some configuration option I need to select to be able to generate more than 1Mbps? I do have a license key but didn't find any place to install said license key. I do not have the Turbo key but that seems to be only for 10Gbps+.
Second Question - Input Packet Drops on LinuxSo I see a small number (percentage-wise) of input packet drops on Ubuntu. I'm guessing some buffer needs to be tuned. I do not see CRCs or anything that would indicate a physical layer issue. Any suggestions?
Alright, so on 1 - I'm an idiot. Sometimes I should do this on more sleep. So what's happening is that I'm attempting to set Ostinato to transmit at 2.5Mbps. Ostinato is transmitting at the full line rate of the interface (which is 1Gbps.). I was trying to test out a bandwidth policer (I guess the policer's not working) because it was letting the entire 1gbps stream through. That's what I blame my belief that it was 1mbps, not 1gbps... couldn't count the 0s correctly.Alright - so then - is there a trick to get Ostinato to actually adhere to the configured transmitting rate ? It's in the screen shot.
Okay, so I adjusted the RX ring size to the max supported by the driver and no change. The rate of dropped frames appears to be the same. However, I stopped transmitting at 2000 bytes (I had a policy set for a fixed frame size of 2000 bytes) and the drops stopped. It was somewhere around 2% packet loss.
