Baselining Session – Network Throughput

Here is another slide from our baselining series.  This one is going to focus on network throughput testing.  I use a couple laptops, and iperf3 software which you can get for free at

The key message is to develop a consistent methodology to test your equipment and network.  I emphasize to create a sample size; mine happens to be five to start with.  Obviously, the more samples you have the more accurate the values will be.

Even though I use iperf3 in this session, there are many other products that will do the same thing. I just wanted to get those who have never done this, started with something. 

Have fun folks.
