 ====== Linux Network Testing Tools ====== ====== Linux Network Testing Tools ======
 +The green links show examples 
-===== Multipath Network Testing ===== 
-To test different network paths from ship to shore using each WAN option directly. For this test we used a [[ |fitlet2]] computer with 4 Gigibit Ethernet ports. 
-=== Hardware Used ===+[[public:multipath |Multipath Network ]]\\ 
 +A brief description to show how to set up multipath WAN testing device. 
-  fitlet2 J3455 Barebone +[[public:tcp_dump|tcpdump]]\\ 
-  16 GB RAM for Fitlet2 +[[]]\\ 
-  512 GB SATA SSD for fitlet2 +**tcpdump** is a data-network packet analyzer computer program that runs under a command line interface. It allows the user to display TCP/IP and other packets being transmitted or received over a network to which the computer is attached.
-  FC-M2LAN FACET-Card (2x Gbit Ethernet)+
-=== Operating System ===+[[public:nmap|NMAP]]\\ 
 +Nmap ("Network Mapper") is a free and open source (license) utility for network discovery and security auditing. Many systems and network administrators also find it useful for tasks such as network inventory, managing service upgrade schedules, and monitoring host or service uptime. Nmap uses raw IP packets in novel ways to determine what hosts are available on the network, what services (application name and version) those hosts are offering, what operating systems (and OS versions) they are running, what type of packet filters/firewalls are in use, and dozens of other characteristics. It was designed to rapidly scan large networks, but works fine against single hosts. Nmap runs on all major computer operating systems, and official binary packages are available for Linux, Windows, and Mac OS X.
- [[ | Ubuntu Mint 20]] was used.  
-==== Magic Sauce ==== 
-Edit **///etc/network/interfaces//** and add a static IP for each WAN 
-  auto eth0 
-  iface eth0 inet static 
-      address [[KA]] 
-      netmask [[]] 
-      network [[KA network IP]] 
-      broadcast [[KA Broadcast]] 
-Edit **///etc/iproute2/rt_tables //** to create local tables 
-  # 
-  # reserved values 
-  # 
-  255    local 
-  254    main 
-  253    default 
-  0    unspec 
-  # 
-  # local 
-  # Create multipath routing tables for Sealink and KA and Cell if available 
-  # A table can also be created to send traffic out the regular ship (via cyberoam and peplink) 
-  1   sealink 
-  2   ka 
-  3   cell 
-  4   ship     
-Create **///root/bin/**  
-The multipath script needs to be run as sudo, so have installed it in /root/bin 
-  # 
-  # script to add routes out each WAN using tables created above 
-  ip route add default via [[ka static ip]] dev [[ka eth]] table ka 
-  ip route add default via [[sealink static ip]] dev [[sealink eth]] table hsn 
-  ip route add default via [[cell static ip]] dev [[cell eth]] table cell 
-  ip route add default via [[ship static ip]] dev [[cell eth]] table ship 
-  # Add rules to the rules  
-  ip rule add from [[ka static ip]] table ka 
-  ip rule add from [[sealink static ip]] table hsn 
-  ip rule add from [[cell static ip]] table cell 
-  ip rule add from [[ship static ip]] table ship 
-  ip rule list 
-==== Other Useful Commands ==== 
 +Can be used to  display bandwidth usage on an interface.\\
 +iPerf3 is a tool for active measurements of the maximum achievable bandwidth on IP networks. It supports tuning of various parameters related to timing, buffers and protocols (TCP, UDP, SCTP with IPv4 and IPv6). For each test it reports the bandwidth, loss, and other parameters.
