  • Packet sent number 0 (network test)

    How can I configure Passmark to show packet sent/received number when performing network test?

    PerformanceTest displays the amount of data sent / received in bytes. So you could just divide this number by the packet size to get the number of packets.

    Another alternative would be to use the Windows task manager. You can select additional columns of information to display on the network tab. I think you can see packet counts.

    A third alternative would be to wait a couple of days for the official beta release of our WirelessMon software. It can be used to count packets as well. It will be available on our web site in a couple of days.

      Thanks, but below are test reports generated by Networking test, one is mine (v5.0), the other one from my customer(v4.0). There is one column shows Packets Sent, should it be gererated automatically?

        Packets sent and received

        We found that the Network performance measurement mechanism that we used in V4.0 of PerformanceTest created a CPU bottleneck when measuring the performance of Gigabit networks (for example, above about 400Mb/s on a 2.4GHz P4). To support Gigabit network performance measurement together with variable length packets, the test mechanism was changed and the number of packets sent and received was removed from PerformanceTest in V5.0.1010 on 17/Feb/2004. In error, we have not removed these fields from the exported result log and will do so in the next release.

        Best regards,
