2010 performance report

I was looking at the 2010 performance report and at the test equipment configuration. I was trying to load it on our borrowed Ixia and I've noticed that the page object is using a file and not the default page object of the Ixia.



Does anybody know where I can find these files? I only have the Ixia for a limited time.






for 128B.html the RFX file is pointing to

  • Hi JD,



    You can create these files using dd (man dd for info) on LTM:



    dd if=/dev/zero of=/var/tmp/output.file bs=1024 count=1024



    This will produce a 1mb file. Increase the count to increase the size of the file.



    Or you can update the blocksize and count to get a smaller size:



    dd if=/dev/zero of=/var/tmp/128B.html bs=128 count=1



    For other examples, you could search the web for something like "create file specific size linux"



  • Thanks hoolio


    I'll try this but I thought there was something special with these file as I don't understand the reason not to use the default Ixia objects.

    Hi JD,



    There is nothing special about the files, they are just text of the appropriate size.
