NetIQ’s Chariot Goes Internet-Scale

NetIQ Corp. announced the availability of its network testing tool, Chariot 4.0. Chariot 4.0 now supports Internet-scale testing with consoles available to test up to 10,000 connections, emulating the network traffic of hundreds of thousands of users.

Testing of all sizes is now simplified with Chariot 4.0’s Visual Test Designer, which defines tests and sets up configurations graphically using mouse clicks and drag-and-drop techniques. With Visual Test Designer, a single graphic can be used to represent large groups of endpoint computers, eliminating the need to define test connections individually.

Chariot determines the performance of multi-protocol networks by running scripts that mimic a variety of applications, including Web, VoIP, videoconferencing, e-mail, ERP, and others. Chariot conducts tests that simulate actual network traffic, providing metrics on response time, throughput, and jitter from the end-user’s perspective.

Chariot is used in most independent network testing labs. New application emulation scripts shipping with Chariot include Microsoft Exchange 2000, Active Directory, SQL Server, NetMeeting, Citrix, Oracle, and a number of VoIP codecs. A script editor is built in to customize scripts, and an optional Application Scanner is available that analyzes the network flows of custom applications to automatically create test scripts. – Isaac Slepner
