INSTALLATION

iperf is a great tool for measuring network performance.  Here is how to install and use.  You will need two systems with iperf installed.

As root:

yum -y install iperf
firewall-cmd --permanent --add-port=5001/tcp
firewall-cmd --reload

SERVER SIDE

Invoke iperf as follows:

iperf -s

Let this run, so if you have a terminal window open, do not close it until the test or desired tests are completed.

 

CLIENT SIDE

Invoke iperf as follows:

iperf -c hostname/ip

The test results are displayed when the test is complete.
