Description (last modified by aturner)

Since the amount of traffic a single instance of tcpreplay is limited, users should be able to start up multiple copies of "tcpreplayd" which listen for directions from a controller. The controller would send the pcap file to each daemon and control them (discovery, set rates, initiate & cancel tests, etc).

Requirements:

  • tcpreplayd - a daemon
  • tcprecontrol - controller for the daemons
    • Handles discovery
    • controls the daemons
  • Strongly suggest using multicast for scalability

Using something like http://www.gnu.org/software/libmicrohttpd/ might be really good for the tcpreplayd control channel
