netperf 2.3.3 Released
Description: OpenSS7 Old News.
Approved for Immediate Release
Mar 15, 2006
(Edmonton, Alberta -- Mar 15, 2006) OpenSS7 today announced Release 2.3.3 of the OpenSS7-modified netperf package. The Hewlett-Packard netperf tool is a network performance benchmarking tool that supports STREAMS OSI interfaces (DLPI, XTI/TLI) directly, in contrast to the University of Illinois iperf tool that only supports sockets. The original Hewlett-Packard netperf tool has been modified by the OpenSS7 Project in these releases to perform benchmarking on both the OpenSS7 Linux Native (Sockets) and STREAMS implementations of SCTP (Stream Control Transmission Protocol - RFC 2960) and INET.
This release contains the Hewlett-Packard netperf package, modified to work with the OpenSS7 Linux Native (Sockets) and STREAMS implementations of SCTP and INET. This package contains all the necessary manual pages and files, and configures and installs against almost any 2.4 or 2.6 kernel, even production kernels.
This is the OpenSS7 Project's third release of the netperf package modified for OpenSS7 SCTP and INET. This is the package that was used to execute the performance tests shown here.
This release is primarily to support additional compilers (gcc 4.0.2), architectures (x86_64, SMP, 32-bit compatibility), recent Linux distributions (EL4, SuSE 10, LE2006, OpenSuSE) and kernels (2.6.15). It includes:
This is public gamma release of the package: it deprecates previous releases. Please upgrade before reporting problems with previous releases.
Deprecated. Download the latest netperf package version above instead.
As with other OpenSS7 releases, this release configures, compiles, installs and builds rpms for a wide range of Linux 2.4 and 2.6 RPM-based distributions, and can be used on production kernels without patching or recompiling the kernel.
This package is publicly released under the GNU Public License Version 2 as well as the HP license (see LICENSE in the distribution for more information). The release is available as an autoconf/RPM tarball, SRPM, and set of binary RPMs. See the downloads page for the autoconf tarballs and SRPMs. See the netperf package page for tarballs, SRPMS and binary RPMS.
