Like dd(1) tool, precise bandwidth limiting/reporting, fifo, TCP
Cstream filters data streams, much like the UNIX tool dd1. It has a more traditional commandline syntax, support for precise bandwidth limiting and reporting and support for FIFOs. Data limits and throughput rate calculation will work for files > 4 GB.
Cstream reads from the standard input and writes to the standard output, if no filenames are given. It will also ‘generate’ or ‘sink’ data if desired.
