|Creating web browsing and movie watching is a common task with LANforge.This cookbook will introduce HTTP download examples and describe the difference between the Layer 4-7 and Generic traffic generation techniques. We will begin on a CT520a with 20 stations.There are two methods of emulating web browsing:
...load test a web server, you will use mostly use Layer 4-7 connections.
...multiple video streams, you would use Generic connections that call c-clive
...Upload files, you would use Generic connections that call curl
The following examples do not assume your LANforge has a route to the Internet, but are pointing at a webserver at an IP address. We are going to show making a common mistake in the first example.
