Testing 1gbps bandwidth

No, I don't want to test just the link. I want to make sure the path in my
ISP also has enough backplane bandwidth and isn't using some old sup32
and thereby throttling traffic

First thing that comes to mind is remembering the difference between
end-to-end throughput and the throughput across one link in the chain.
If you really need to validate the one link, you probably need to get some
system to inject packets at the other end of the link.
