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)
