Flooding WAN links for testing

Hi all

Does anyone know of free utilities out there that enable you to flood a WAN link for capacitytesting? For instance Solarwinds Engineer Edition (found at www.solarwinds.net) does have a tool called "WAN Killer". This toll is pretty good but I'm looking for something that is free and can do the same tasks (or even better). Thanks in advance for your help.

There's one called "bricks".

I have a copy, but I can't find a URL for it right now. I'll keep looking.

There is one called iperf. It supports windows and unix, in terms of functionality, TCP, UDP traffic generator, jitter, packet loss, TCP window descovery, TCP mss, window adjustment, service mode, bi-directional traffic generation and it also has a java GUI

For Windows hosts, I used to use PCAttcp's UDP mode to flood links.
