[ntp:hackers] S/W for testing NTP server installation

I haven't seen much for Ntp testing over the years.  Typically we use a packet generator like Spirent or Ixia to test load and drops and a custom GPS synchronized probe to sample accuracy.  I think there was someone out there offering fuzz testing, maybe Crytonomicon but I haven't seen a conformance or compliance test.  I think one of Mill's graduate students named Kamboj something started on a test fixture a few years back?  You might search the archives.

Subject: [ntp:hackers] S/W for testing NTP server installation

I am interested in links to any S/W which will allow me to test an NTP
server installation.
Preferably running under Linux.

Would like to test throughput, packet loss and handling of erroneous
packets etc.
