Abstract:
The field of network performance evaluation is of great significance for researchers and network administrators alike. This has resulted in a great number of applications designed to aid the process. These applications vary quite a bit, ranging from simple tools, such as the famous ping program all the way to complex and sophisticated ones. OverTester resides on top of other performance measurement programs, like a management console, automating and co-coordinating the process. It is Modular, while its most significant features are its Peer-to-Peer and Cross-Platform nature.
