<H2><A name="intro">1. Introduction to RUDE & CRUDE</A></H2>
RUDE stands for <STRONG>Real-time UDP Data Emitter</STRONG> and CRUDE for
<STRONG>Collector for RUDE</STRONG>. RUDE is a small and flexible program
that generates traffic to the network, which can be received and logged
on the other side of the network with the CRUDE. Currently these programs
can generate and measure only UDP traffic.<P>
These programs are a "side product" of the project
<A HREF="">Faster 2000</A> (former Faster Pro)
which concentrates on different QoS mechanisms in IP-networks. This means
that these tools were designed and developed for our own purposes so the
documentation is not yet complete and the operation is quite limited. On
the other hand the main goal was to build flexible and very capable set
of tools so if you have any wishes and/or contributions, please contact
the authors. Contact information is located on the bottom of this page.<P>
The operation and configuration might look similar to the other available
traffic generator tool called MGEN but these programs do not share any code.
Actually these tools were designed and coded bacause of the accuracy
limitations in the MGEN program. MGEN operates with system timers and
e.g. in the Linux kernel on PC-platforms the timer resolution is only 10ms.
That is pretty poor, so we decided to do our own traffic generator which
hasn't got this limitation.<P>
