Assigning traffic to streams

The streams that the traffic should be distributed to are specified by giving a range or list of streams as StreamId argument in one or more Assign NTPL commands.

Traffic that is not assigned to any stream will be dropped.

By default, traffic is distributed to a set of streams using a round robin algorithm.

Simple distribution example

In this example, all traffic will be distributed in round robin fashion between streams 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6.

Assign[StreamId=(0..6)] = All
