The software-based DHCP load tester can simulate clients to test DHCP servers, or simulate DHCP server to test clients, with customizable message flows and content.
Flexible, portable, cost-effective solution to test Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) servers and clients. The Valid8 DHCP load testing tool simulates DHCP requests from multiple clients in parallel to the DHCP server DUT in order to test and evaluate its performance under high loads.
DHCP Server DHCP Client
User commands can be fully automated using REST API. This includes performing all test control functions as well as collecting results and metrics. It can be integrated into virtually any CI system via the HTTP API, including Jenkins, CircleCI, Gitlab and others.
The application’s subsystems can be edited directly in the browser using TDL or by using the graphical tools. The Message Workshop allows for creating of test scenarios directly from the hex stream of a remote capture, while the Graphical Editor (on the feature roadmap for 1Q 2020) will allow for creating customized call scenarios by dragging and dropping the call flow to meet your test needs.
For testing the DHCP Server, the Valid8 Tester can generate DHCP v4 and v6 messages to test performance, stability and security.
