Following is a survey of all the known available TCP Testing Tools. The survey includes both free and paid tools, and tools for network operators as well as TCP protocol developers. Some tools are primarily for debugging TCP operational issues, whereas others are full blown TCP protocol test suites for testing conformance and robustness for TCP client side and TCP server side operation. Some tools focus on TCP throughput and performance whereas others generate TCP traffic streams.
