    Suggestion on Number and Size of Test Packets?

    I'm looking to come up with the best combination of Test Packet Size and numbers of Test packets to run to get the closest approximation to 'real world' performance. Any suggestions?

    One other question, when you run multiple numbers of test packets, are the final values listed an actual average of all the runs, or just the most recent?

    Thanks!

    the suggested numbers 'should' be the default IMO, but the default 1MB packet size is not suggested, it seems it should be set to ~10MB for more accurate results, at least for gigabit networks.

    Hi guys,

    I agree, for faster networks (100Mb and up), 10MB packets or more are a good size. I like to use 10 packets to send/receive.

    The final values listed is average of all packets from the most recent run. The soon to be released v3 (I'm really hoping for next week), however, lets you see average, maximum, and minimum results!
