An outstanding platform for performance testing that rivals high-end hardware solutions

Reviewed a year ago

I have worked for a few companies now and it is very hard to justify a performance tester outside of QA and Dev so to have an affordable option that works allows me to take Alliance Partner acceptance testing to the next level rather than trying to rely on tcpreplay or Dev to let me use theirs.

Pros

1. Ease of use2. Multiple deployment options3. Flexibility to customize screens4. Import of existing PCAP files5. Granular control of steams

Cons

The one drawback is that a lot of my testing with our security alliance partners require the use of specific pcaps, I leverage, https://www.malware-traffic-analysis.net/, for the much of this. It sometimes requires a lot of manipulation to get the attack to register on the security tool. May just be a training issue so a whitepaper etc on this would be great.

Vendor response

Thank you James for your kind words. Regarding the malware pcap replay not registering on the security tool, please reach out to the forum or support. We will try and help you out.

Excellent alternative to expensive network performance testing tools

Reviewed 10 months ago
Pros

The GUI is very easy to use and makes sense. And now with the TURBO mode we can test devices up to 40G without any problem. Also the tech support is TOP NOTCH.

Cons

Overall everything is well documented and easy to use and understand. I would like to see the GUI have saved preferences for setting port stat columns a certain size etc. Currently you have to resize them each time you bring it up. But that is minor compared to the amazing functionality of the product.

Vendor response

Thanks for your kind words, Peter! We'll try and extend the GUI to remember the last column size settings for the ports window.

When iPerf just doesn't do it anymore...

Reviewed 9 months ago

It was great working with [sensitive content hidden], he is always quick to answer emails and improve his product.

Pros

Had to test MPLS and VxLAN traffic at higher speeds and Ostinato met our requirements with a low cost compared to other expensive appliance based traffic generators.

Cons

No cons as of yet, still testing and using the product.

Vendor response

Thank you for your kind words, Mike!

Great value for the dollar

Reviewed a year ago

I use the product to test functionality and it has worked perfectly for the goal

Pros

The cost/port for simple functionality testing. The cost per port for performance testing is also exceptional

Cons

I would like to order and rename the physical ports into logical groups. Other than that there very little to not like about it :)

Vendor response

The upcoming v1.3 will allow user editable port descriptions (see https://twitter.com/pstavirs/status/1568183077662490624). Please share your use case for reordering ports and we will consider implementing!
