Branch: pkgsrc-2022Q1, Version: 1.47nb2, Package name: nttcp-1.47nb2, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

NTTCP (New TTCP) times the transmission and reception of data between two
systems using the UDP or TCP protocols. It differs from common ``blast''
tests, which tend to measure the remote inetd as much as the network
performance, and which usually do not allow measurements at the remote end
of a UDP transmission.

The following is a short list of the improvements which have been made
over "classic" TTCP:

* Ported to a variety of operating systems
* Can be started via inetd
* Output can be customized on the commnad line
* Centralized reporting of the measurements
* Traffic checksumming to detect failures in UDP transmissions
* Multicast support
