Check Network Bandwidth
2015/10/23
 
Check Network Bandwidth with iperf.
This needs 2 machine, Client(Sender) and Server(Receiver).
[1] Install iperf3 (Install on both Client and Server) .
# install from EPEL

[root@dlp ~]#
yum --enablerepo=epel -y install iperf3
[2] Execute the command on the Server like follows.
It's possible to specify the listening port to add "-p (port number)".
If not specified. default port(5201) is used like follows.
[root@dlp ~]#
iperf3 -s

-----------------------------------------------------------
Server listening on 5201
-----------------------------------------------------------
[3] Check Network Bandwidth to execute the command like follows.
The example below shows that 4.24 GBytes datas are transfered and the bandwidth was 3.64 Gbits/sec.
[root@www ~]#
