Description

start

Starts Iperf throughput tests in server mode

ap {[ap-name <ap-name>]

[ip-addr <ip-addr>]

[ip6-addr <ip6-addr>]

[tcp [window <window>]] |

udp}

Starts Iperf throughput test on an AP using:

[ap-name <ap-name>]: AP name

[ip-addr <ip-addr>]: IP address of AP

[ip6-addr <ip6-addr>]: IPv6 address of IP

[tcp [window <window>]]: Use 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 with suffix k for kilo or m for mega

udp: Use 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.

controller {[tcp [window <window>]] | udp}

Starts Iperf throughput test on a controller using:

[tcp [window <window>]]: Use 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 with suffix K for kilo or M for mega
