Quick and dirty VoIP test using ping

ping -i 0.02 -s 270 -c 500 <ip address>

You need superuser privileges to perform a ping with a .02 second interval. The -s 270 is the size of a ulaw SIP packet. The -c denotes 500 packets. The resulting ping flood will simulate a SIP packet flow. You can quickly see any lost packets and the jitter. QOS settings can cause this type of traffic to not act exactly like SIP traffic.
