Netperf is a benchmark that can be used to measure the performance of
many different types of networking. It provides tests for both
unidirectional throughput, and end-to-end latency. The environments
currently measureable by netperf include:
- TCP and UDP via BSD Sockets for both IPv4 and IPv6
- Unix Domain Sockets
- SCTP for both IPv4 and IPv6
Here are some of the netperf services available via this page:
