iPerf

iPerf is a network bandwidth throughput testing software. This test profile is used for automated testing of an iperf client and requires you have access to an iperf server.

This test profile automates the testing of a iperf3 client. Ensure you have a suitable iPerf server running on your network prior to running this test.

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

Based on OpenBenchmarking.org data, the selected test / test configuration (iPerf 3.7 - Server Address: localhost - Server Port: 5201 - Duration: 10 Seconds - Test: TCP - Parallel: 1) has an average run-time of 2 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.
