Now I want to test the network performance between two Linux systems.

The test scenario is as follows: one terminal sends UDP datagrams to the other terminal continuously at fixed intervals (the interval and the length of the datagram are defined by the user), and finally I can get the latency required for each UDP message to reach the receiving end, as well as their maximum, minimum and average latency.

I would like to know if there is any such tool in Linux that can meet my needs?
