Ethr

Ethr is a cross-platform Golang-written network performance measurement tool developed by Microsoft that is capable of testing multiple protocols and conducting different measurements.

This test profile automates the testing of a Microsoft Ethr client. Ensure you have a suitable Ethr server [https://github.com/microsoft/ethr] running on your network prior to running this test profile.

To run this test with the Phoronix Test Suite, the basic command is: phoronix-test-suite benchmark ethr.

Performance Metrics

Analyze Test Configuration:

Ethr 1.0

Server Address: localhost - Protocol: TCP - Test: Bandwidth - Threads: 1

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 63 public results since 16 June 2022 with the latest data as of 29 July 2022.

Below is an overview of the generalized performance for components where there is sufficient statistically significant data based upon user-uploaded results. It is important to keep in mind particularly in the Linux/open-source space there can be vastly different OS configurations, with this overview intended to offer just general guidance as to the performance expectations.

Based on OpenBenchmarking.org data, the selected test / test configuration (Ethr 1.0 - Server Address: localhost - Protocol: TCP - Test: Bandwidth - Threads: 1) has an average run-time of 3 minutes. By default this test profile is set to run at least 3 times but may increase if the standard deviation exceeds pre-defined defaults or other calculations deem additional runs necessary for greater statistical accuracy of the result.
