Today we are going to learn how to check bandwidth in the linux.Here we are using the iperf utility to analyze the bandwidth.
Scenario : Here we need two machines to perform the task.
Server 1 : http://www.server.world (192.168.0.101)
Client 1 : dlp.server.world (192.168.0.100)
There are two machine one is client(Sender) and other is Server (Receiver).
Step 1 : Install iperf on server and client both
Server : [#] yum –enablerepo=epel -y install iperf3
Client : [#] yum –enablerepo=epel -y install iperf3
Step 2 : Now execute the iperf command to check whether serve port is listening or not.
[#] iperf3 -s
Step 3 : Check Network Bandwidth to execute the command like follows.
The example below shows that 2.33GBytes datas are transfered and the bandwidth was 2.00Gbits/sec.
Step 4 : There are some more options of iperf which are as below :
