Syntax

Parameter

Description

start

Starts Iperf throughput tests in client mode.

ap

Starts Iperf throughput tests on specified AP in client mode.

ap-name <ap-name>

Specifies name of an AP.

ip-addr <ip-addr>

Specifies IP address of an AP.

ip6-addr <ip6-addr>

Specifies IPv6 address of an AP.

host {<ip>|<ip6>}]

Specifies IP or IPv6 address of perf server.

duration <duration>

Specifies time, in seconds, to transmit. Default is 10 and range is 10 to 120.

parallel <parallel>

Specifies number of parallel clients threads to run. This should be less than the number of parallel threads on the server.

tcp [window <window>]

Specifies TCPTransmission Control Protocol. TCP is a communication protocol that defines the standards for establishing and maintaining network connection for applications to exchange data.  window size to use.

udp [bandwidth <bandwidth>]]

Specifies UDPUser Datagram Protocol. UDP is a part of the TCP/IP family of protocols used for data transfer. UDP is typically used for streaming media. UDP is a stateless protocol, which means it does not acknowledge that the packets being sent have been received. bandwidth to use.

controller

Starts Iperf throughput tests on specified controller in client mode.

stop

Stops Iperf throughput tests in client mode

Usage Guidelines

This command launches/stops Iperf throughput test in client mode. For the remaining parameters, see the command syntax.

Example

Access the CLICommand-Line Interface. A console interface with a command line shell that allows users to execute text input as commands and convert these commands to appropriate functions. and use the following command to start Ipref throughput test on an AP named ap215 using TCPTransmission Control Protocol. TCP is a communication protocol that defines the standards for establishing and maintaining network connection for applications to exchange data. window size 2k in client mode:

(host) [mynode] #perf-test client start ap ap-name ap215 host 192.0.2.1 duration 10 parallel 1 tcp window 2
