packet-size (RFC 2544 Benchmarking)


Hierarchy Level


Define up to 10 packet sizes that are used sequentially for the test.



Size of the test packet. If you enter multiple packet sizes, you must separate each number with a space.

  • Range: 64 through 9136 bytes


    The valid packet sizes are 64, 68, 72, 128, 256, 512, 768, 1024, 1280, 1518, 1522, 1600, 1728, 2496, 3584, 4016, 9104, and 9136 bytes. If you specify a packet size other than the ones listed here as valid sizes, the configuration is saved when you commit the setting and no error message is displayed. However, when you start the test by entering the test services rpm rfc2544-benchmarking test test-name start command, an error message is displayed if you configured an invalid packet size in the test profile associated with the test name.
