Re: How to measure network quality&performance for voip&gameservers(udp packetloss, delay, jitter,...)

My favorite tool for assessing delay distribution and loss over time is Tobi Oetiker's (of MRTG fame) SmokePing (http://www.smokeping.org/). As input, it can use various types of measurements - ping RTT/loss measurement in the simplest case, but also Cisco SAA (now called IP SLA) measurements, or various other types of probes such as HTTP or DNS requests. The nice thing is the way it presents the time distributions graphically. The graphs also include loss rates. Check out the "demo" part of Tobi's webpage. -- Simon.
