thrulay-ng is a network capacity tester based on thrulay 0.6. It consists of a client (thrulay) and a server (thrulayd) between which measurement takes place. Simply start thrulayd at the machine which should act as a server:$ thrulayd
Then start thrulay on the client machine with a command like:$ thrulay -m 3 -t 10 host
This performs a TCP throughput test with 3 parallel streams (set by the -m parameter). The test duration is 10 seconds (set by the -t parameter). By default, thrulay will print a progress report every second (in TCP tests) and prints final statistics after test duration is over.
Simply run thrulay without any parameter to get a list of options that are supported. Also have a look at the manual pages of thrulay and thrulayd.
The latest file releases are available from the SourceForge project page.
You can also check out the CVS repository through anonymous (pserver) CVS with the following commands:$ cvs -d:pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvsroot/thrulay-ng login
When prompted for a password for anonymous, simply press the Enter key.
You can build the binaries with the following commands:$ ./configure
If you wish to install the programs and/or manual pages to your system, type the following commands as root:# make install
