sprayd(8)

Name

rpc.sprayd, sprayd - spray server

Synopsis

/usr/lib/netsvc/spray/rpc.sprayd 

Description

rpc.sprayd is a server that records the packets sent by spray(8). The rpc.sprayd daemon may be started by inetd(8).

The service provided by rpc.sprayd is not useful as a networking benchmark as it uses unreliable connectionless transports, (udp for example). It can report a large number of packets dropped when the drops were caused by the program sending packets faster than they can be buffered locally (before the packets get to the network medium).
