The Ostinato project is looking for help with packaging. If you can maintain binary packages (any platform/distro) - please send an email to ostinato at googlegroups dot com
Universal binaries are available as a .dmg here for OS X 10.5 or later. Please read the HOWTO-INSTALL.txt inside the .dmg for important instructions.
Ostinato is available in the FreeBSD ports collection. To install the port -
cd /usr/ports/net/ostinato/ make install clean
For other BSD distros, please file a request with your distribution for an Ostinato package.
Binary packages for these distributions are built using Open Build Service (OBS) - an excellent software/service that provides packaging support for several Linux distributions. Ostinato packages are built using openSUSE's OBS public instance infrastructure
Go to Ostinato Packages, select your distro and follow the provided instructions.
Ostinato has an official package on Portage -
To see Ostinato in the official Arch community repository, add your vote!
Check if your distribution is supported by the OpenSUSE's OBS instance. If it is supported, send an email to the Ostinato mailing list (ostinato at googlegroups dot com) to request a Ostinato package. Otherwise, please file a request with your distribution for an Ostinato package. Till the time one is available, use the source package and follow build instructions in Building from Source
Convert any PC to a dedicated traffic generator by using the Live CD/USB. Because there is only a minimal OS and there are no competing applications for CPU and memory, running Ostinato as a Live CD/USB will achieve higher traffic rates than running the Ostinato application in a traditional OS.
Use the .vmdk image to run Ostinato as a VM on a hypervisor.
Download the images from SUSE Gallery (you will need to create an account or use an existing OpenID).
