How do i test network connection for UDP-Lite protocol (along with checksum coverage) instead of UDP with "IPerf" tool.

for udp we use following command-> iperf -s -u -i 1

what command should i use for udp-lite protocol.

You can use patched IPERF compile, and then run:

# iperf -s --udplite 0
Server listening on UDP-Lite port 5001
Receiving 1470 byte datagrams
UDP-Lite datagram buffer size:  160 KByte (default)

From help:

  -u, --udp                use UDP      as transport; no argument may follow
  -u  --udplite   #        use UDP-Lite as transport; arg: cscov (0=full coverage)

  • I am trying to emulate a network for udp file transfer but the problem is that when i use any "tc" command on the sending side (for udp file transfer), it send all data immediately even 200MB but on the receiver side hang after receiving 2-3 MB(receiver side not responding properly). I just want to emulate for packet loss,delay,packet corruption but facing problem with receiver side. Is there any previous settings to use "tc" command.. – sak Apr 9 '14 at 15:59
