The LANforge-FIRE Cookbook provides a set of high-level examples of how to setup useful test scenarios in LANforge-FIRE for traffic generation. Each example intends to give the reader a brief introduction to the test scenario and a set of step-by-step instructions on how to use the LANforge-GUI to configure the test.
All of the following examples will work on Linux systems running the LANforge software with the LANforge kernel and a sufficient license. If you are running another Linux kernel, you will not be able to exactly duplicate some of the examples, but there are usually work-arounds available to assist you. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
