        TESTLVS 0.1 - a LVS director throughput testing tool
is available at:

The main goals:

- to  test the throughput in packets/sec for a LVS director:
the hash functions and the connection table management

- to  test  the  anti-DDoS  defense  strategies  in  the LVS

- to   show   how   LVS  performs   on   different  hardware
configurations  (your  best results  can be  put on  the LVS
site). There are users that need this information.

        After the first tests in the Wensong's labs, it seems
one client host running testlvs is not enough to put the LVS
director near its limits. You can experiment with two or more
client hosts.

        Currently, there is a script for the real servers that
shows the traffic in packets/sec for Linux 2.2+. You are free
to build other scripts on other platforms that show this rate.
The other thing you can do is:

cp testlvs testOTHER_BALANCER

if the request rate is not enough. Good luck!
