REALLY need to understand iperf
Posted on 2014-11-19
Not sure how to award this question. Hoping not too many people will reply and that one or two can explain this. I have logging devices which need to use iperf to test to their home base server.
I need a good layman understanding of Iperf testing. I don't want a highly technical breakdown of Iperf, but something which is easily understood by practically anyone.
I ask this because searching the net, there seems to be lots of confusion about different results from client and server side. There are also mentions of being able to do a two way test but I have yet to find a way of doing that. Would a two way test give me the results of both the client and the server? Would that give me a better understanding of uploads and downloads speeds?
I'm at a loss... help!
