IxLoad™: Data - Radius, SSH, Telnet, DNS, DHCP, LDAP, DDoS, Vulnerability Attacks

IxLoad tests critical aspects of network infrastructure like DNS, DHCP, and AAA services, as well as generate malicious traffic to test for security.

IxLoad tests

IxLoad can be used to:
  • Test the performance of key network services (SSH, Telnet, DNS, DHCP) under high load
  • Test the capacity of user management systems using LDAP clients
  • Assess the resiliency of firewalls and the ability of packet filtering devices to thwart attacks
  • Measure the performance of various content-aware devices and networks while under attack
