IET - IP and Ethernet testing Tool

IP and Ethernet testing Tool ("IET") is an ethernet bridge addon for testing of network appliances and applications (communication equipment).

Initialy IskraTel extended and customized the NistNet tool. However NistNet functions on IP layer and requires that tested equipment be configured to use different subnets and gateways. Nistnet main purpose was internet emulation while IET main purpose is testing of communication equipment.






Initial screen with one rule. On the left you can see a list of rules. In the middle is a notetab with a matching column and a target column. The last column holds the statistic infromation.


The same screen with IP tab open. Visible is IP based matching area and IP/UDP based target area. For a packet to "hit" a target it has to match both ethernet and IP criteria (left notetab column).


Delay distribution graphs:

IET supports a constant and random delay. This graphs show the even distribution of delay engine (set to 200ms constant and 50ms random delay).
X axis: Packet number
Y axis: Packet delay

The same graph with dots. A carefull observer will notice the linux timer granularity. The data was acquired on a RedHat 8.0 vendor kernel with a resolution of 512ticks per second.
