    Does Zeroshell come with IPERF installed? If not is it possible to add it??

    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?

    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?

    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>

    Cool thanks.

    And to kill the netserver process will ‘killall netserver’ work? or is there another way?

    Cheers
    Thanks again.

    Yes, ‘killall netserver’ terminates correctly the daemon.
