Ostinato Live converts any PC to a dedicated network packet traffic generator. It runs the open source cross platform packet traffic generator – Ostinato.
Ostinato is a network packet and traffic generator and analyzer with a friendly GUI. It aims to be “Wireshark in Reverse” and thus become complementary to Wireshark. It features custom packet crafting with editing of any field for several protocols: Ethernet, 802.3, LLC SNAP, VLAN (with Q-in-Q), ARP, IPv4, IPv6, IP-in-IP a.k.a IP Tunneling, TCP, UDP, ICMP, IGMP, MLD, HTTP, SIP, RTSP, NNTP, etc. It is useful for both functional and performance testing.
NOTE: While running the image, if auto-login doesn’t work and you are prompted for a login/password, use -
USB Stick / Hard Disk Image
Dump this format on your USB stick or hard disk and boot from it. You may need to instruct the machine’s BIOS to boot from an external source if you’re usign a USB stick. Write the disk image using either `dd` or image writing software on your OS.
Live CD / DVD (.iso)
Use this format if you want to burn your appliance on CD or DVD. This is the easiest way to prepare bootable media. Simply download the .iso file and burn it to disk via any existing OS.
VMware Workstation / VirtualBox (.vmdk)
For virtual machines on VMware, VirtualBox, or KVM-based hypervisors. Test an appliance without formatting any hard disk. VirtualBox and VMware applications are available for most host operating systems. KVM virtualization is for Linux only.
OVF Virtual Machine / ESXi (.ovf)
Open Virtualization Format (OVF) is an open, standards-based format for virtual machines. A variety of hypervisors including SUSE Cloud, VirtualBox, VMware ESX(i), IBM SmartCloud, and Oracle VM support creating virtual machines by importing an .ovf file.
SUSE Cloud / OpenStack / KVM (.qcow2)
If you plan to use SUSE Cloud services to host your server, this format will properly configure the appliance for you to do so. Use WebHooks to inform your cloud of a new image, and upload it automatically.
This release adds IPv4/IPv6 device emulation and automatic ARP/NDP resolution for corresponding streams, save/restore sessions, protocol builder for STP and several other features and bugfixes.
