Network Testing Tool (myPerf)

The myPerf tool uses a Java graphical interface to measure maximum network throughput between two WAN or LAN links. I have developed this tool using Java language as front-end which uses iperf utility at the backend . It is used to perform network test that create  TCP and UDP data streams.  Iperf is a tool for network performance, bandwidth and the quality of a network link. The utility is fully open source and runs on both Windows or Linux systems.

Download tool from here : https://www.dropbox.com/s/dfdadchm6wpv8lv/myPerfv1.0.rar?dl=0

1)  Open the zip file and extract it, once you open the folder you can view .jar file.

2) Launch the myPerfv1.o executable application .

3) Before we run to test the bandwidth we need  two PCs  or two servers. We will first run the application to the machine which acts as a server and click “Run”. We can choose the test will be for TCP or UDP data streams.

Note : If you are facing issue to launch the jar executable  , check if you have installed latest version of  JAVA and environment variables are set for JAVA_Home.
