Testing Wireless Performance
Mon Sep 15 10:57:28 PDT 2003
In using hostap in an enterprise environment, Ive spent a lot of time
doing single client testing on performance and stability on a variety of
platforms. Something that has been a continual problem, however, is
trying to test its fitness with a large load and a large client base.
It would be great to know how well the system will handle stress before
it gets put into production. I can test it with a few real clients
(several simple PCs set up to sign on to the wireless network) but I
need to be able to measure its performance with a dozen or more, which
isnt really feasable to simulate without heaps of equipment. What do
you all suggest as a good way to stress an AP to discover its true
performance? Thanks for your help!
