Feature Request: IPerf

Mon Nov 24, 2014 4:34 am

Would be great to have an iperf compatible server/client on mikrotik.

+1 would be a nice feature. I like iperf, do all my tests with it

Oh please.

Or add jitter/latency and similar stats to bandwidth test. I guess iperf compatibility is easier.

+1 for IPerf. As addition to previous purposes: it's good to test wireless link from mobile running iperf client/server. And of course to test bandwidth between pc box and mikrotik.

This would be great to have for sure, especially being able to specify number of parallel client threads to run.

Re: Feature Request: IPerf NOW!

Tue Dec 01, 2015 6:50 am

Absolutely essential. No other product in this class has the feature. We need an application that reports end-to-end jitter, OOS and latency for VoIP applications. RFC compliance is helpful. Its an older app, but its the one the ISPs understand - and if they "get-it", half my network problems would be solved.

Add: After doing some research on iperf, it can place a high load on the bus and to some degree processor when run at higher rates - such as those on today's 100Mbps/1Gbps LANS; it might just expose processor limitations. I wonder how the faster models RB800's+ would do?

So instead of giving Mikrotic my money (which is what I would prefer) we are spending hundreds of $US on two Jetway Barebones fanless 12 vdc boards w/Gb Ethernet interfaces and a Linux install for this purpose. Oh well..

Ok, Mikrotik, can we have any rough statement to this? At least if iperf was denied, or if we can expect it in v7 since its beginning or in v6 yet since 6.39.2?

To add, iperf3 should be fairly easy to add - My understanding is that it's being ported to some CPE in the states. Along the same lines, there is a binary that should be compatible for latency / Jitter called OWAMP, integration of that would be great as well assuming the clock is accurate enough to support it. I've done some work in making it work in VMs inside of other network hardware capable of running a virtualized perfSonar system in-skin. Having the binaries directly in the RouterOS would allow for a very robust meshing of tests back to a central perfSonar MU. I am in favor of having these things, it brings significant value.

Full disclosure: I work for the organization that writes iperf.

Maybe you can directly offer your help to mikrotik support so they will be able to integrate iperf soon. It would be awesome.

That would be a killer feature to have built into ROS!

So I can see and test iperf, in addition to passing more traffic information, should consume less resources of the processor, and can thus show the actual throughput that the hardware is able to deliver

Hello,

we already have a bandwidth testing tool which is fully integrated into RouterOS and works properly with the RouterBOARD ethernet drivers. The tool is called 'Traffic generator' (available both in WinBox and from the command line interface). Please take a look. We hope you like it - https://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:T ... _Generator

do you can release Traffic Generator for Windows?
do not ask me why it is necessary.

I will look into Traffic Generator if it gives us similar data. However, this would only be useful for internal analysis of our network - not the WAN.

We are constantly in a battle with ISPs. It is much better to use an application that they understand or they will dismiss its results. In other words, we need evidence of problems in a format they understand, trust and can reproduce. iperf does this.

If TG is strictly based on an IETF/RFC standard/best practice that is well known to ISPs, then this might work,

But thanks for the reply.

Can I run 'iperf -s' on a computer, use Mikrotik Traffic generator to send traffic to this computer and read meaningful measures on either device (Mikrotik host or computer) ?
