How do I benchmark latency with different packet sizes?
I’m trying to benchmark network latency with different packet sizes.
Standard ICMP ping works great until a payload size of 1 KB. After that, it becomes increasingly unreliable with packet drop rates of > 80%.
I also tried Ultra Ping which sends pings over UDP but none of the echoes reflected by the server arrive at the client.
When tunneling traffic via VPN everything works fine.
