Let's say the card supports measuring those block errors. Do you happen
to know about any such utility that let's you measure that? You happen to
mention about *wireshark* but upon reading it's user guide, I didn't find anything
about measuring error rates of any kind.
For the Plan C (measuring throughput), I think iperf is a good tool.
