iPerf network performance benchmarks
iPerf is a widely used tool for network performance measurement and tuning. It is significant as a cross-platform tool that can produce standardized performance measurements for any network.
Infrastructure Environment tested
The MySQL DB application has been tested on the following:
|Host OS||Ubuntu 17.10|
|Environments tested||AWS i3.xlarge, Sunlight xlarge|
Two instances are created in different hosts to run the iPerf between them to measure the network throughput.
One instance servers as server and runs the following command.
The other instance servers as the client to send packets to the server, where the following command is running.
./iperf -c <server_ip_address> -P <number_of_threads>
|Platform||Number of iperf threads||Network throughput (Gbps)|
