About the Packet Flooder Tool
The Packet Flooder tool is a Network Traffic Generator.
It sends UDP packets to a target IPv4 or IPv6 address. You
have control over the target port and payload in the UDP
packets. It is multithreaded so under the right circumstances
it can send UDP packets at a rate fast enough to achieve 98%
or so bandwidth usage* on a 100BaseT ethernet interface.
The are also timing controls that allow you to vary the
rate at which packets are sent.
*bandwidth saturation or usage may vary and is a function of your computer hardware and software.
- This is a UDP Packet Flooder/Traffic Generator. It does not send any other type of packet.
- Use this tool only with targets that you have permission to contact.
