NAME [Toc] [Back]
spray - spray packets
SYNOPSIS [Toc] [Back]
/usr/sbin/spray host [-c count] [-l length]
DESCRIPTION [Toc] [Back]
spray sends a one-way stream of packets to host using RPC, then
reports how many were received by host and what the transfer rate was.
The host name can be either a name or an internet address.
Options [Toc] [Back]
spray recognizes the following options and command-line arguments:
-c count Specifies how many packets to send. The default
value of count is the number of packets required
to make the total stream size 100000 bytes.
-l length The number of bytes in the Ethernet packet holding
the RPC call message. Since the data is encoded
using XDR, and XDR only deals with 32-bit
quantities, not all values of length are possible.
The spray command rounds up to the nearest
possible value. When length is greater than the
size of an Ethernet packet, the system breaks the
datagram into multiple Ethernet packets. The
default value of length is 86 bytes (the size of
the RPC and UDP headers).
