Network Interface Tests

Our network tests use the ntttcp application distributed by Microsoft for testing network controller’s efficiency.  The program creates a number of threads from a server machine to spit data at the test machine at up to Gigabit speeds.  Both maximum throughput and CPU utilization are tested.
