IPERF - Another application for testing throughput and latency. It requires you to install an application on the PCs at both ends of the connection. You can download the application at: http://sourceforge.net/projects/iperf/ The Indiana GigaPoP has IPERF installed on a server, but does not keep it running persistently. If you are a member of the Indiana GigaPoP and wish to run an iperf test with our server, please contact the NOC to schedule testing.
BWCTL - A "wrapper" around iperf. It provides an authenticated/authorized way to automate iperf testing across administrative domains. The Indiana GigaPoP has a BWCTL available. If you would like to setup BWCTL testing, please contact the NOC using our
Trouble Ticket Request Form.
