Ethr

Ethr is a cross-platform Golang-written network performance measurement tool developed by Microsoft that is capable of testing multiple protocols and 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 2019-01-02

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

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 1,115 public results since 12 January 2019 with the latest data as of 5 July 2021.

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.
