Branch: pkgsrc-2007Q3, Version: 2.3.1, Package name: netperf-2.3.1, Maintainer: itojun

Netperf is a serious networking performance evaluation tool being
distributed under GPL by HP's Information Networks Division.
Testing is done using a pair of programs: `netserver' (the server) and
`netperf' (the measurement tool).

Netperf allows control over a large number of test `variables'.
Some of these are:

* specification of desired confidence levels for the tests
Netperf will warn the user if these levels were not achieved.
* filling send buffers with specified data (to beat compression
* specification of send/recieve buffer alignments and data offsets
* requesting cpu utilization and service demand calculations
* specification of sizes of data to send

Netperf can be used for measuring stream performance as well as
round-trip performance.

This port of netperf has been configured to support:

TCP and UDP via BSD sockets
Unix domain sockets
