RE: BGP testing?

  • From: Lane Patterson

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.
