./benchmarks/dnsperf, DNS server performance measurement tools

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 2.1.0.0, Package name: dnsperf-2.1.0.0, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

DNSPerf, ResPerf, and DHCPerf are free tools developed by Nominum that
make it simple to gather accurate latency and throughput metrics for
Domain Name Service (DNS) and Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol
(DHCP). These tools are easy-to-use and simulate typical Internet so
network operators can benchmark their naming and addressing
infrastructure and plan for upgrades. The latest version of the DNS
test tools (DNSPerf and ResPerf) can be used with new test files that
include IPv6 queries.

DNSPerf "self-paces" the DNS query load to simulate network
conditions. New features in DNSPerf improve the precision of latency
measurements and allow for per packet per-query latency reporting is
possible. DNSPerf is now multithreaded, multiple DNSPerf clients can
be supported in multicore systems (each client requires two
cores). The output of DNSPerf has also been improved so it is more
concise and useful. Latency data can be used to make detailed graphs
so it is simple for network operators to take advantage of the data.

Release Notes
************************
December 15, 2015

In addition to various bug fixes, the following new capabilities
were added in this release:

 - The -C option was added to resperf. This option enables the local
   server to act as multiple clients.  By default, the local server
   acts as a single client.

 - the -T option was added to dnsperf. This option separates the
   number of clients from the number of threads and allows more
   clients to be simulated effectively.  Note that using this option
   impacts CPU and memory, so we recommend limiting the number of
   threads.

Log message:
Add SHA512 digests for distfiles for benchmarks category

Problems found with existing distfile for superpi:
	distfiles/super_pi-20030927/super_pi.tar.gz
No changes were made to the superpi/distinfo file.

Otherwise, existing SHA1 digests verified and found to be the same on
the machine holding the existing distfiles (morden).  All existing
SHA1 digests retained for now as an audit trail.
