DNSMeter is a tool for testing performance of nameserver and/or infrastructure around it. It generates dns queries and sends them via UDP to a target nameserver and counts the answers. Features: - payload can be given as text file or pcap file - can automatically run different load steps, which can be given as list or ranges - results per load step can be stored in CSV file - sender address can be spoofed from a given network or from pcap file, if payload is a pcap file - answers are counted, even if source address is spoofed, if answers get routed back to the load generator - roundtrip-times are measured (average, min, mix) - amount of DNSSEC queries can be given as percentage of total traffic - optimized for high amount of packets. On an Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2430 v2 @ 2.50GHz it can generate more than 900.000 packets per second Following repositories are included: - https://github.com/DNS-OARC/dnsmeter
