Netperf

Netperf is a network bandwidth testing software. This test profile is used for automated testing of a netperf client and requires you have access to a netperf server.

This test profile automates the testing of a Netperf client. Ensure you have a suitable Netperf 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 netperf.

Performance Metrics

Analyze Test Configuration:

Netperf 2.7.0

Server: 192.168.1.55 - Test: UDP Stream - Server To Client - 10G - Duration: 10 Seconds

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 47 public results since 18 March 2018 with the latest data as of 26 April 2018.

Additional benchmark metrics will come after OpenBenchmarking.org has collected a sufficient data-set.
