iperf can help you test the bandwidth of your network setup via a TCP connection:
# On one computer: iperf -s -w 2M -i 1 -p 2222 # On the other computer: iperf -c the.one.computer.local -w 2M -i 1 -p 2222
Or test via UDP (be careful, this is more likely to have a negative impact on your network):
# On one computer iperf -s -u -i 1 -p 2222 # On the other computer: iperf -c the.one.computer.local -u -b 300M -i 1 -p 2222
This will show you jitter, and the percentage of lost datagrams.
If you want to test the network speed over IPv6 with
iperf, just add the parameter
-V to the commands on the server and on the client.
