About the Packet Flooder Tool
The Packet Flooder tool is a UDP 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. 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. Version 11.90 introduced
a method for controlling the desired
outgoing interface bandwidth.
*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.
