Malformed IPv4 packets fuzzing cause 20% more CPU spike than IPv6 packets fuzzing
Iím performing malformed IPv4 and IPv6 packets fuzzing on my Linux machine and monitoring the CPU and memory usage of Linux machine.
Iíve following observation
CPU % : 50-60%(IPv4) 30-40%(IPv6)
Avg. packets/sec sent: 15433.218(IPv4) 14449.875(IPv6)
Avg. packet size sent: 657.467 bytes(IPv4) 780.383 bytes (IPv6)
Avg. bytes/sec sent: 10146839.070(IPv4) 11276439.045(IPv6)
IPv4 fuzzing causes CPU spike 20% more than IPv6 fuzzing. Can anybody tell what causes this difference.
