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.On Mon, Oct 20, 2008 at 11:51 AM, Max Pyziur <pyz brama com> wrote:IPTraf?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. fyi, MP pyz brama com On Mon, 20 Oct 2008, Dan Track wrote:Hi 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? Thanks DanThanks, But that's only for monitoring isn't it? I need something that would generate the traffic aswell. Any thoughts? Thanks Dan
