Iperf was developed by NLANR/DAST as a modern alternative for measuring maximum TCP and UDP bandwidth performance. Iperf allows the tuning of various parameters and UDP characteristics. Iperf reports bandwidth, delay jitter, datagram loss.

Very handy in my situation, because I mantain and fairly large wireless network and iperf would be very handy to check bandwidth between our towers.

I’ve heard or people using IPERF and or TTCP to do this. NETPERF is new to me but from what I’ve read it may do the same thing as IPERF and TTCP. I’ll have to look into it abit more.

Do you have directions on how to start and stop the server and client sides within Zeroshell?
