I've been looking through some of the tools available for generating traffic to measure maximum network throughput, namely iperf, bwping, ttcp, etc. I am planning on doing throughput tests over a long period of time, so what I really need is good graphing output, preferably rrd graphs.
The Jperf frontend for iperf will generate a graph, and bmon has a nice command-line graph, but these simply count seconds since the test was started. I am trying to measure trends in throughput over times of the day, so a graph with times and days is necessary.
So a way to get iperf to log to RRDs would be best, if this isn't possible could someone point me toward another solution?
EDIT: I have had ntop suggested, which does produce the types of graphs I like, but ntop lacks the ability to generate traffic, it just monitors. I guess I could run ntop while running iperf tests, but again, if anyone has an "all-in-one" solution....
