nping sending ARPs 15.6ms apart #1514
We would like to be able to send directed ARPs continuously at 2ms intervals (500pps) for a specific test, and we like nping since it is usable on the command line for automation.
However, we have observed that when we try to send directed ARPs at this rate, wireshark shows the ARPs coming out at intervals of 15.6ms. This seems to only happen on Windows 10, and on Windows 7 and Ubuntu linux it sends them out correctly at 2ms intervals. I have tried various methods of Windows 10 optimization that I found on Google:
• Close peer to peer update process
None of these have worked.
I have tried adjusting the delay down to 1ms and it still sends them out at 15.6ms intervals. However, when I lower it to 0.9ms, it suddenly jumps to 25,000 pps.
This is the command that I am using:
nping --arp --dest-mac 00:80:f4:02:f7:69 --arp-target-mac 00:80:f4:02:f7:69 --arp-target-ip 192.168.0.78 --quiet -c 0 --delay 2ms 192.168.0.78
I have also tried using –rate 500.
