Proving the Network is Not the Problem With iperf – Packet Life: “When an application fails to perform as expected, the network is often the first thing blamed. I suppose this is because end users typically view the network as the sole limiting factor with regard to throughput, unaware of the intricacies of application, database, and storage performance. For some reason, the burden of proof always seems to fall onto networkers to demonstrate that the network is not at fault before troubleshooting can begin elsewhere. This article demonstrates how to simulate user traffic between two given points on a network and measure the achievable throughput.”
