Router\Switch Performance testing

I have the responsibility to test used routers and switches my company will be receiving from other companies . We are are a recycling center and recieve a variety of different gear. I was wondering if someone could tell me a way to thoroughly bench test (throughput, firmware, ect.... ) the routers and switches so we can determine if they are worth refurbishing or scrapping. 

 

Thank you

Re: Router\Switch Performance testing

Hi @Jakemon2000 ,

 

What would I do in your case?

I would configure an internal network, controlled, with optimal devices.

With that ready, if I want to test a router, I would replace the optimal router with the test router and see real performance.

The same if I want to try a switch.

Cisco software licences are not technically transferrable between owners.  When someone buys second hand Cisco kit they are meant to buy a new licence.
