misc : cstream
Like dd(1) tool, precise bandwidth limiting/reporting, fifo, TCP, audio support
cstream is a general-purpose stream-handling tool like UNIX' dd, usually used in commandline-constructed pipes. - Sane commandline switch syntax. - Exact throughput limiting, on the incoming side. - Precise throughput reporting. Either at the end of the transmission or everytime SIGUSR1 is received. Quite useful to ask lengthy operations how much data has been transferred yet, i.e. when writing tapes. Reports are done in bytes/sec and if appropriate in KB/sec or MB/sec, where 1K = 1024. - SIGHUP causes a clean shutdown before EOF on input. - Build-in support to write its PID to a file. - Build-in support for fifos. Example usage is a 'pseudo-device', something that sinks or delivers data at an appropriate rate, but looks like a file, i.e. if you test soundcard software. - Built-in data creation and sink, no more redirection of /dev/null and /dev/zero. These special devices speed varies greatly among operating systems, redirecting from it isn't appropriate benchmarking and a waste of resources anyway. - "gcc -Wall" clean source code, serious effort taken to avoid undefined behavior in ANSI C or POSIX, except long long is required. Limiting and reporting works on data amounts > 4 GB. - Audio support: input/output-files can be switched to Audi CD quality mode - TCP support: input-output streams can be TCP connections, either connecting to other hosts or waiting for a host to connect
