August 20, 2008 at 12:36 pm #46800 imported_fulvioParticipant I have already installed netperf and the related netserver to monitor the network speed. I do not know iperf. Is it a network performance test? is iperf better than netperf? Regards Fulvio August 21, 2008 at 12:51 am #46801 FrothingdogMember 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. http://sourceforge.net/projects/iperf/?abmode=1 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? August 21, 2008 at 6:43 am #46802 imported_fulvioParticipant You can start the server daemon with root@test root> netserver Starting netserver at port 12865 Then you can perform a basic TCP 10 seconds test with root@test root> netperf -H 192.168.0.75 TCP STREAM TEST to 192.168.0.75 Recv Send Send Socket Socket Message Elapsed Size Size Size Time Throughput bytes bytes bytes secs. 10^6bits/sec 87380 16384 16384 10.01 826.86 root@test root> Regards Fulvio August 21, 2008 at 11:51 am #46803 FrothingdogMember Cool thanks. And to kill the netserver process will ‘killall netserver’ work? or is there another way? Cheers Thanks again. August 21, 2008 at 12:11 pm #46804 imported_fulvioParticipant Yes, ‘killall netserver’ terminates correctly the daemon.
