Release Notes: This release includes improved wireless traffic generation and some network emulation stability fixes relating to packet capturing. The WiFi stations can now be set to a mix of /a, /b, /g, and/or /n. Rates and other settings can be set on each interface. Third-party traffic can be bridged on to the virtual stations based on MAC address or IP address.
Release Notes: This release includes improvements for file I/O, packet replay, VoIP, and GUI real-time graphing. The LANforge-ICE network emulator has performance improvements to sustain at least 5Gbps bi-directional flow on modern high-end hardware. Virtual routing supports RIP and OLSR. The GUI supports batch-modify, allowing the user to easily apply the same setting(s) to many endpoints and ports at the same time.
Release Notes: This release has better support for File I/O testing: auto-mount, auto-unmount, and verify mount for NFS, NFSv4, CIFS, and iSCSI file systems. The GUI has been improved to allow batch-creation of most tests to aid creation of large numbers of connections without having to use a CLI script. This release has been upgraded to Linux kernel 22.214.171.124.
Release Notes: LANforge now supports the IPv6 protocol. The Windows build more closely matches the feature set of Linux, and Solaris x86 and SPARC are supported as well. The graphical network builder supports virtual routers, including OSPF and subnet routing for IPv4 and IPv6, network impairments, traffic-generating nodes, and more. The GUI and other components have been improved to scale past 4000 concurrent connections on modern hardware. The network emulator and traffic generator support 10G networks.
Release Notes: This release improves SIP to handle Re-Invite messages, cleans up call counters, and fixes the jitter buffer to handle reorders, duplicates, over-runs, under-runs, and various other problems. It improves kernel locking for the wanlink module, giving increased stability and performance up to 990Mbps. HTTP connections can use caching systems such as squid.
Release Notes: Integrated reporting generates graphs and HTML reports. The kernel patch now supports 1000 or more virtual interfaces. There is support for up to 31 802.11a/b/g virtual STAtion interfaces. CIFS and NFS filesystems are supported on virtual interfaces. SIP authentication is supported. The network emulation feature can now be configured to inject bit and byte errors. Bugfixes for kernel panics when deleting WanLinks, a lockup with re-direct devices, and various other less critical bugs.
Release Notes: New VOIP features include SIP call generation on Windows, cache RTP encoding for better call performance, and PESQ support on Windows. T1/E1 physical interfaces are supported by WAN emulation. This release take packet serialization times into account in the network emulator. There are performance improvements on Linux. This release supports NFS on specific interfaces, including MAC-VLAN virtual interfaces. It uses 64-bit counters to handle 10Gbe interfaces. It supports 64-bit Linux. File I/O on Windows has been fixed.
Release Notes: VOIP call generation now supports h.323. Windows installers are much improved. PPPoE interfaces are now fully supported. Previously running tests are automatically restarted when LANforge restarts.
Release Notes: This release adds support for PESQ automated voice quality testing to the VOIP traffic generation feature. The ICE-Cap network probe tool was ported to Windows, and the clustering logic was updated to make it easier to install stand-alone systems. Several small bugfixes were made to the VOIP code.
Release Notes: Bugs related to licenses, the e100 driver, and the GUI were fixed. LANforge-ICE is now able to work over 802.1Q VLANs on drivers that do not support accelerated 802.1Q VLANs. The performance of kernel-mode ICE on lower-end systems and ethernet drivers was increased. The packaging of the LANforge-GUI was modified to make it easier to edit the properties files.
