Repeatable packet drop testing is one of the new features in rugged deviation emulator Rude in the latest product update. The basic problem with packet drop testing is that all packets are not equally critical. A random drop scenario may target more significant packets during one test round, and less significant in the next, making it difficult to pinpoint the root causes for network problems. Now it is possible to create a drop pattern by selecting precisely the packets to be dropped and repeating exactly the same drop pattern in later test sessions.
