The Network Diagnostic Tool (NDT) v-3.6.5 released.

 The Network Diagnostic Tool (NDT) is a client/server program that provides network configuration and performance testing to a users desktop or laptop computer. The system is composed of a client program (command line or java applet) and a pair of server programs (a webserver and a testing/analysis engine). Both command line and web-based clients communicate with a Web100-enhanced server to perform these diagnostic functions. Multi-level results allow novice and expert users to view and understand the test results.


Hardware Requirements

The NDT system does not place a tremendous set of demands on a host. The question is: can it operate in the environment specified by the network administrator? the primary client is located on a campus with an Ethernet, WiFi, or Fast Ethernet

network connection, then a low-powered server would suffice. If the primary serve Gigabit Ethernet-connected hosts, transcontinental, or international more powerful host will be required.

Minimum requirements for a campus only server are:

•500 MHz Intel or AMD CPU

•64 MB of RAM

•Fast Ethernet

If you can purchase a new or better machine, an optimal server for the future

•2 GHz or better processor

•256 MB of RAM

•Gigabit Ethernet

Disk space is needed for executables and log files, but there is no disk I/O during testing. Thus, any disk capable of holding the basic Linux operating suffice for a basic NDT server.


Software Requirements

Web100 enhancements that are needed are:

•Linux kernel

•User library

ther third-party software needed to compile source includes:

•Java SDK

•pcap library

•Client uses Java JRE (beware of versioning issues)

And, of course, the NDT source file – test engine (web100srv) requires root authority.
