I've read that
iperf basically tries to send as much information down a connection as quickly as possible reporting on the throughput achieved. This tool is especially useful in determining the volume of data that links between two machines can supply.
Is it possible to gather the same results by sending regular data, as in not testing data?
What I'm trying to do is this; sending data in the foreground while in the back ground gather statistics (throughput and jitter).
So can anyone tell me how
iperf calculates these two values ?
