Measuring IOTA Tool Behavior

The video pretty well speaks for itself, so I will just toss in a few points worth mentioning and a link to hrping.

Hrping can be downloaded at

Even though I tested packet loss when I rebooted the IOTA, you can conduct tests with more scenarios, like applying a software update, applying a firmware update, starting and stopping a capture, etc…

I created the video for you to think about testing your inline tools and thinking about their behavior, so please don’t get all caught up with the details of my specific results.

You can use the same methodology to test failover topologies or similar scenarios with other equipment.

Quick disclaimer; i was not paid by Profitap to create this video, nor do i sell, or resell their products.
