RE: BGP testing?
QARobot has good full BGP conformance testing and a language called QBOL that gives you scripting control. But it's not a line-rate oriented product, for that you'd want RouterTester or Ixia. Since the QOSnetics acquisition, they've been gradually migrating functionality from QArobot to RouterTester. Take a look at Ixia www.ixiacom.com as well, they also have BGP4 emulation software. -Lane > -----Original Message----- > From: Dave Parkin [mailto:email@example.com] > Sent: Sunday, November 19, 2000 2:15 PM > To: Irwin Lazar > Cc: firstname.lastname@example.org > Subject: RE: BGP testing? > > > > QOSnetics was acquired by HP last year: > http://www.hp.com/pressrel/sep99/20sep99h.htm and is now part > of Agilent. > Seems the 'QA Robot' is the result: > http://advanced.comms.agilent.com/qarobot/ > > Dave > > > -----Original Message----- > > From: email@example.com > [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org]On Behalf Of > > Irwin Lazar > > Sent: 18 November 2000 14:54 > > To: 'Timothy Brown'; 'email@example.com' > > Subject: RE: BGP testing? > > > > > > > > Have a look at > http://www.networkmagazine.com/article/DCM20000510S0017 > > > > It is a lab test performed by the old "Data Communications" > > magazine on the > > Juniper M40.
