       netstress - utility designed to stress and benchmark network activity


       netstress -m[NAME] | --master=[NAME] [OPTIONS]


       Client/server  utility designed to stress & benchmark network activity of a given ethernet
       device or path using simulated (random) real world data and packet sizes instead of  fixed
       data and packet sizes.

       Easily  command  line  usage with random packets sizes and random data for read, write, or
       read & write (default) testing and reporting benchmark results from the ethernet device.


       -m[NAME], --master[=NAME]
              This instance is the master

       -s[NAME], --slave[=NAME]
              This instance is the slave

       -h, --host nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn
              Use this host or IP address

       -p, --port nnn
              Use this port (default=5678)

       --seed, -S nnn
              Use this random number seed (master only)

       -c, --ctime
              Report current time (default reports elapsed time)

       -n, --nsec nnn
              Report every nnn seconds (default=5)

       -N, --nrep nnn
              Benchmark every nnn reports (default=3)

       -b, --bytes
              Benchmark using bytes (default is bits)

       -M, --mps
              Benchmark using mbytes/sec or mbits/sec (default)

       -K, --kps
              Benchmark using kbytes/sec or kbits/sec

       -B, --bps
              Benchmark using  bytes/sec or  bits/sec

       -w, --mwo
              Only test master write / slave read

       -r, --mro
              Only test master read / slave write

       -R, --realrandom
              Do real random test (not pseudo random)

       -f, --fast
              Run Fast (no checking, no real_random)

       -v, --verbosity
              Enable verbosity (multiples increase level)

       -d, --debug
              Enable debugging (multiples increase level)

       -?, --help
              Give this information
