Network Performance Measurement using Iperf



How can we measure the throughput of a network.

Steps performed

Using iperf, one can measure the network performance. Iperf is a free utility.

On the one server run it in server mode:

Please stop the dbvisit service before you do this so we can use the same port.

C:\iperf>iperf -s -i 1 -p 7890

On the other server, run it in a client mode, example in this case the server mode was started on dbvwin102:

C:\iperf>iperf -n 1024M -i 1 -c dbvwin102 -p 7890
