Tool for measuring Tomato to Tomato throughput?

    I've got a couple of WDS+AP links in my home network. Performance isn't great and I'm going to try to improve it (repositioning routers, perhaps separating WDS and AP, possibly trying better aerials etc). It would be useful to get an idea of throughput over each individual link by getting timings for transfer of e.g 100MB as I change things. Anyone know of such a tool that would run on Tomato? I'm thinking of something like NetCPS. I guess that could be compiled for Linux, but I have no idea how to do that (I'm willing to learn though:))

    ping can be quite useful. ping -s 10000 for example.

    That might work. Thanks

    Interestingly "ping -s 47352" is OK, whereas "ping -s 47353" or higher gives 100% packet loss. Any idea why that could be?

    (Tomato 1.23)

    Edit: Something to do with "do not fragment" perhaps? However the -f option is not valid anyway and there appears no option to allow the opposite.
    And I see the Tomato GUI allows a maximum of 10240.....
