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.
