Spirent TestCenter: What is the maximum throughput that can be achieved when running ALP HTTP and FTP traffic at the same time on C1 Appliance?

Environment/Versions
  • Spirent TestCenter C1 Appliance
  • 10 GigE interfaces connected back-to-back
  • version 4.24
Answer

When running both at the maximum "Dynamic Load" we see a combined "Goodput Avg Rx Rate (kbps)" of about 237,000 (http) + 506,000 (ftp) = 733,000.

When running HTTP at the maximum "Dynamic Load" by itself we see an "Goodput Avg Rx Rate (kbps)" of about 560,000 (versus 237,000 when running alongside ftp).

When running FTP at the maximum "Dynamic Load" by itself we see an "Goodput Avg Rx Rate (kbps)" of about 670,000 (versus 506,000 when running alongside http).
