A container for tests is being built. Based on ubuntu, these tools are being used:
Plus, a useful script to wide test a connection to a different container.
docker run -it -d miguelcallejasp/ipperformance:1.2 /bin/bash
This container uses the port TCP/5001 to test connectivity.
Network Test Script
You can test connectivity to another host (using the same container) with the following script:
.networktest <ip-address> <min_mtu> <max_mtu>
This will send multiple ping packets to the destination with variable MTU length. You will be able to see the results of those packets as they are issued.
At Destination Host
In the destination host, you must execute the following command to start receiving packets:
#iperf -u for TCP
#iperf -su for UDP
