How to measure jitter value using Mikrotik?

Thu Jan 08, 2015 11:56 am

Dear Expert
I 'd like to measure jitter value between Mikrotik link.
Can we measure jitter?
Referring to traffic generator page" http://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:To ... _Generator".
It described on that "It also collects latency and jitter values, tx/rx rates, counts lost packets".
How can I measure jitter value again?

But the command is "tool traffic-generator stats latency-distribution" only.
What is latency distribution?
What is difference between latency distribution and jitter?
What is the relationship between latency distribution and jitter?
I further found that "IPERF tool " can discover jitter value " http://openmaniak.com/iperf.php"
From this command "#iperf -c 10.1.1.1 -u -b 10m" and "#iperf -s -u -i 1"
Mikrotik new version will have a similar function like "IPERF" ?
please advise;

You can use /tool traceroute on your link. Even it's one hop, it will ping the remote device and calculates the standard deviation of the latency, which is the jitter you are looking for.

Thank you very much.

And more question.
1.Traffic generator can measure jitter or not? and How traffic generator measure jitter value?
Referring to traffic generator page" http://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:To ... _Generator".

In addtion, I question what is the precision of the measure and how this precision changes with the architecture and cpu clocks?
