Today, many kinds of real-time applications are available over IP networks. It is important to measure the network performance for such applications before making use of real applications. Authors developed the general purpose traffic measurement tool for IP networks. This system can generate any kinds of traffic flexibly and calculate the network performance such as throughput, delay and loss ratio according to received packets. In this paper, the concept of this traffic measurement tool is described in detail, and several examples of network measurements are shown.
