  • 22.1. Testing Network Bandwidth
Skip to end of metadata
Go to start of metadata

Prerequisites:

  • Port 5001 is open between the device and the updated unit
  • A Windows 64bit machine and iPerf 2.0.9

 iPerf is an open source tool that can be used for monitoring network conditions between devices. You can obtain the software here: https://iperf.fr/iperf-download.php.

Our firmware now includes iPerf 2.0.9 running in server mode, making it as easy as running the following command on your Windows device:

iperf -c BOX_IP -t 15 -i 1

 

Where BOX_IP is the IP address of the box you wish to test. You can find out what IP the test unit is on by visiting the Boxes list on the Vivi Administration Portal.


Once you have run the test you should see something like this:

If your iPerf bandwidth results do not fall within the range of our recommended settings, it's worth looking at the duplex mode / speed setting for the relevant Ethernet interface on the network switch to which the Vivi box is connected.

If you run into this scenario and find that these or other changes were required, we would greatly appreciate feedback on the matter, as these are highly dependent on variations between switches and routers.
