Francis Dupont gave a presentation at the DNS-OARC spring workshop about exactly this. The motivation for developing the tool he described was that he couldn't find a sensible TCP performance tool, so much like your experience.



I don't get the impression that the tool is released yet, but no doubt Francis/ISC would be happy to give you an early snapshot.
