Description

Internet Protocol bandwidth measuring tool Iperf is a modern alternative for measuring TCP and UDP bandwidth performance, allowing the tuning of various parameters and characteristics.

Features:

  • Measure bandwidth, packet loss, delay jitter
  • Report MSS/MTU size and observed read sizes.
  • Support for TCP window size via socket buffers.
  • Multi-threaded. Client and server can have multiple simultaneous connections.
  • Client can create UDP streams of specified bandwidth.
  • Multicast and IPv6 capable.
  • Options can be specified with K (kilo-) and M (mega-) suffices.
  • Can run for specified time, rather than a set amount of data to transfer.
  • Picks the best units for the size of data being reported.
  • Server handles multiple connections.
  • Print periodic, intermediate bandwidth, jitter, and loss reports at specified intervals.
  • Server can be run as a daemon.
  • Use representative streams to test out how link layer compression affects your achievable bandwidth.
