Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have Darwin streaming Server and VLC installed on different virtual machines. What i am trying to do is stress test/benchmark both from a third virtual machine. This is a preliminary part of a project i am working on.

The idea is to check service speed/maybe quality when i send 2-10-100 rtsp requests for one file then the same thing for 5 files...and so on

Any recommendations?

It's possible to use VLC or openRTSP. You can write a shell script to open up all 100 connections.

Thank you. openRTSP -Q /rstp://<url>/playlist.sdp does the trick. All you have to do next is redirect what would be shown on terminal to a file and bingo. –  Voodoower Apr 13 '13 at 8:33
