MGEN provides the ability to perform IP network performance tests
and measurements using TCP and UDP/IP traffic. Test messages
can be generated, received and logged. MGEN offers control over
all network parameters and timing of these messages. All this can be
done either via the command line or defined in a file format for
greater reproducibility.
