Netperf is a benchmark that can be use to measure various aspect of networking performance. The primary foci are bulk (aka unidirectional) data transfer and request/response performance using either TCP or UDP and the Berkeley Sockets interface. As of this writing, the tests available either unconditionally or conditionally include:
TCP and UDP unidirectional transfer and request/response over IPv4 and IPv6 using the Sockets interface.
TCP and UDP unidirectional transfer and request/response over IPv4 using the XTI interface.
Link-level unidirectional transfer and request/response using the DLPI interface.
Unix domain sockets
SCTP unidirectional transfer and request/response over IPv4 and IPv6 using the sockets interface.
