We currently have this installed on our network engineers 'Jumpbox,' server that is centrally located for all to use. This allows anyone to login and utilize the software to troubleshoot a vast array of issues, or even to simulate issues for proof of concept testing. With so many tools in the toolset, it is a troubleshooter's best friend.
  • Network Stress Tests.
  • Port mapping.
  • Open port checking.
  • MIB walking.
  • CPU/Memory monitoring.
  • User interface feels dated.
We have used it to test our SDWAN bandwidth during our initial rollout. The WAN Killer does just that, and you can see how much traffic your wan links can take. It has also been helpful in identifying open ports that we need to lock down to ensure we are achieving compliance with SOX, HIPAA, and PCI. This is a tool for network engineers, I can't see use cases for non-network related tasks.
Our organization uses it regularly. It is reliable, and we keep finding new uses for it.
