I have a school project and the aim is to load test a Rpi as a packet sniffing tool.
I'm looking for a tutorial or advice.
For now, I just connected two laptops via ethernet cable with the Rpi but I do now know how to start packet exchanging....any suggestion?
Just remember that the RPI Ethernet interface is actually connected to the CPU via r=the sad old USB2 bus. So your not going to get Gigabit/s throughput. With good efficient sampling code, the 3B+ CPU will likely outperform the ethernet NIC. So your limitation will be because of the NIC.
A good article on RPI Ethernet speeds. https://www.jeffgeerling.com/blogs/jeff ... networking
