Thanks for the response. I already have packet dumps of the test, so I can 
tell what the last packet is that is sent right before the device crashes 
(and I also know that it has to do with the packet forwarding acceleration 
code on the device, because when I unload all acceleration then things 
work as expected without any crash).

I know the device crash occurs around test 58/110, but I am not 100% sure 
exactly which of these tests that cause it, because it could also be that 
the crash (and it's a kernel crash+reboot) is caused by a delayed reaction 
to an earlier test.

So it would be really helpful if the CLI client would support to just run 
one of the tests, and perhaps not even create a report. Another option 
would be to be able to insert a 5 second delay between each test, to 
easily isolate them.

So if you're going to re-open the cli client for development, please take 
what I wrote above under advisement.
