incorrect jitter summary

Hi,

I urgently need help and I will be grateful for any hint.

I ran iperf in udp mode using this commands:

# iperf -s -u -f k -i 1 
# iperf -c 192.168.0.105 -u -b 68.8k -l 172 -t 60 -f k -i 1 -P 10 -F g711-glos.wav

-P parameter is different for each subsequent analysis

Example of results from server side:

Option to auto stop UDP traffic when network goes down

Hello, 

Thanks for any response in advance.

I would like to know if iperf supports (or planning to support) any mechanism where the sender will automatically detect (using some sort of keep-alives, say) that the network is down and stop pumping in UDP traffic.
Let me know if something like this exists.

Re: Option to auto stop UDP traffic when network goes down

Easy enough to wrap iperf with a script, or run a separate watchdog process.

Well it depends on what you mean.  If the far end host goes down or is
partitioned from the network (it becomes unreachable fro some reason) Iperf
will exit due to the conventional mechanics of using the sockets interface.

For example:  (192.168.1.1 is not reachable from my test host.)

$ iperf -u -c 192.168.1.1
------------------------------------------------------------
Client connecting to 192.168.1.1, UDP port 5001
Sending 1470 byte datagrams
UDP buffer size: 9.00 KByte (default)
------------------------------------------------------------
[  3] local 198.124.252.117 port 59240 connected with 192.168.1.1 port 5001
write2 failed: No route to host
[ ID] Interval       Transfer     Bandwidth
[  3]  0.0- 0.0 sec  1.44 KBytes  1.04 Mbits/sec
[  3] Sent 1 datagrams
read failed: No route to host
[  3] WARNING: did not receive ack of last datagram after 1 tries.

The important bit above is:  "write2 failed: No route to host"

There are other classes of failures that will not get detected, which
something like keep alives would probably help with.  However, there are no
plans at this point to implement a keep alive system in Iperf.

Hope that helps,

Jon

Re: Option to auto stop UDP traffic when network goes down

It depends where the failure occurs.  I send udp packets to non existent hosts/IP's all the time and iperf
doesn't care.  If the failure is on the iperf host itself it will prolly care

I do that all of the time as well, so I should have been more clear.

If Iperf receives ICMP notifications that there is an error at the far end it
will exit.  This is a somewhat big 'if' as it depends on ICMP not being
filtered and on the network being properly configured.

Bad performance with iperf but good with robocopy file transfer

Hey,

 

#1 Quick question :

What is the difference between using iperf and sending packets and using filecopy? I get bad speed sending between 12-64K packets with iperf. Only 5Mbit/s on a local network. But if I copy big files everything goes good or if I add the –w 1MB option. Anyway, I have a case at Microsoft and Vmware and we are troubleshooting why everything goes slowly in our environment. They asked me to do a robocopy of 30.000 small files with filesize 12K. And it goes pretty fast.. so my question is, what is the difference between these two methods in terms of transferring?

 

 

#2 Longer question if you have time to read:

We have the last two months troubleshooted why things go slow in the network and we have used iperf to see that we have problems from some Server2008 hosts to other windows servers, but not to Linux server. Its only the send traffic that goes slow, what we have found out so far:

·         If I create a virtual machine and send it to vmware, it will performs bad 5Mbit/s

·         If vmware creates a machine and sends it to us, it will performs good 500Mbit/s

·         If I create a virtual machine it performs bad 5Mbit/s

·         The virtual machine vmware created had 8K as default TCP window size and ours has 64K, any comment? Its created from the exact same ISO and the same procedure

·         If we turn up the TCP window Size to 1MB it performs good. 500Mbit/s

·         Its only towards other windows machines it performs bad, not towards a Linux dist.

·         It can receive in 500Mbit/s but only send in 5Mbt/s

·         Robocopy goes much faster 50Mbit/s if the files are 12K each and I copy 26.000 files, but I guess small file copies cant go faster

·         Regular windows copy from windows t windows goes as fast as Roocopy.

·         All machines are clean installs with no firewall or antivirus, just the latest SP and patches.

 

It feels like we have tested everything with disabling Offload and all those tweaks but Im happy to get some new perspectives

 

 

 

Francesco

can't bind to a source port?

Hi all,

I was wondering why there is no option to bind iperf to a specific source port, on the client side?

Thanks,
Brice
