Nuttcp

Nuttcp is a network performance measurement tool intended for use by network and system managers. Its most basic usage is to determine the raw TCP (or UDP) network layer throughput by transferring memory buffers from a source system across an interconnecting network to a destination system, either transferring data for a specified time interval, or alternatively transferring a specified number of bytes.

This test profile automates the testing of a Nuttcp client. Ensure you have a suitable Nuttcp server [http://nuttcp.net/] 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 nuttcp.

Performance Metrics

Analyze Test Configuration:

Nuttcp 8.1.4

Test: TCP Transfer - Default - Server Address: 192.168.1.83

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 36 public results since 11 January 2019 with the latest data as of 25 January 2019.

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

Based on OpenBenchmarking.org data, the selected test / test configuration (Nuttcp 8.1.4 - Test: TCP Transfer - Default - Server Address: 192.168.1.83) 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.
