Testing the network performance using Iperf

To test the network performance of a server or machine, we've an open source tool using which we can test network performance i.e. Iperf. Iperf is very reliable for testing the network performace and measuring network performance between two servers.

It's quite easy to install on the client end using the yum utility on the Linux machine and then one can see it used like below:-

iperf -s <server IP or hostname>

Server listening on TCP port 5001
TCP window size: 85.3 KByte (default)

[  3] local port 4000 connected with port 5001
[ ID] Interval       Transfer     Bandwidth
[  3]  0.0-10.0 sec  1.1 GBytes  1.09 Gbits/sec

That's it.
