1 Test Network Performance

  • In Friendlycore we can use the iperf utility to test network performance. Make sure your board is connected properly and the hardware works before start testing

  • To avoid interference from unexpected sources use an independent IP section and test with a PC host.

1.1 Setup Network

  • When you test Ethernet please disable WiFi. You can disable WiFi by running the following commands.
 ifconfig wlan0 down
 ifconfig

  • When you test WiFi please disconnect or disable Ethernet. You can disable Ethernet by running the following commands.
 ifconfig eth0 down
 ifconfig

1.2 Test Transmission Performance

Run your PC host as a server and your board as a client. Test your board's transmission performance by sending data from your board to your PC host.

  • 1. Check your PC's IP address by running the following command. In our test our PC's IP address was 192.168.10.100
 ifconfig
  • 2. Open a terminal on your PC and run the iperf command as follows on the terminal to set your PC as a server
 iperf -s
  • 3. Open a terminal on your board and run the iperf command as follows on the terminal to set your board as a client. Make sure to fill your PC's IP address in the iperf command
 iperf -c 192.168.10.100 -t 60 -i 1

We tested a NanoPi R1S-H3 board and here is what we got:

1.3 Test Receiving Performance

Run your PC as a client and your board as a server. Test your board's receiving performance by sending data from your PC to your board.

  • 1. Check your board's IP address by running the following command. In our test our board's IP address was 192.168.10.102
 ifconfig
  • 2. Open a terminal on your board and run the iperf command as follows on the terminal to set your board as a server
 iperf -s
  • 3. Open a terminal on your PC and run the iperf command as follows on the terminal to set your PC as a client. Make sure to fill your board's IP address in the iperf command
 iperf -c 192.168.10.102 -t 60 -i 1

We tested a NanoPi R1S-H3 board and here is what we got:
