ABSTRACT ABSTRACT
Routers in an operational network are configured with multiple Routers in an operational network are configured with multiple
protocols and security policies while simultaneously forwarding protocols and security policies while simultaneously forwarding
traffic and being managed. To accurately benchmark a router for traffic and being managed. To accurately benchmark a router for
deployment it is necessary to test the router in a lab environment deployment it is necessary to test the router in a lab environment
under accelerated conditions, which is known as Stress Testing. under accelerated conditions, which is known as Stress Testing.
