From the Description:
IPTraf is a console-based network monitoring utility.  IPTraf gathers
data like TCP connection packet and byte counts, interface statistics
and activity indicators, TCP/UDP traffic breakdowns, and LAN station
packet and byte counts.  IPTraf features include an IP traffic monitor
which shows TCP flag information, packet and byte counts, ICMP
details, OSPF packet types, and oversized IP packet warnings;
interface statistics showing IP, TCP, UDP, ICMP, non-IP and other IP
packet counts, IP checksum errors, interface activity and packet size
counts; a TCP and UDP service monitor showing counts of incoming and
outgoing packets for common TCP and UDP application ports, a LAN
statistics module that discovers active hosts and displays statistics
about their activity; TCP, UDP and other protocol display filters so
you can view just the traffic you want; logging; support for Ethernet,
FDDI, ISDN, SLIP, PPP, and loopback interfaces; and utilization of the
built-in raw socket interface of the Linux kernel, so it can be used
on a wide variety of supported network cards.

Does anyone know of a program that I can use to test network
performance. I've got to devices one linux and the other windows, I'd
like to see if the linux device is getting nearly the max 100Mbit of
performance when sending data to the windows box. Any thoughts?




But that's only for monitoring isn't it? I need something that would
generate the traffic aswell. Any thoughts?


I believe netperf (http://netperf.org) has both a linux and a win32 variant. Netperf is run as a receiver/server on one PC and then ran as a client/sender on the other to benchmark network performance. Reverse the roles to get performance stats in the other direction.
