How to benchmark my system

  • Hey there. Thanks in advance for the help. I just finished my system setup.. I am running a i7 3770S with 16GB of a memory, a 120GB ssd and a mobo with two supported Intel NICs. I also have a managed 8 port PoE edgeswitch and a ubiquiti AP pro for my WiFi. I would like to test my throughput as well as possible , stressing snort as well . how can I test the throughput of the router other than a speed test with only two NICs ? Everything connects to my switch . so if I run iperf between two PCs, its really only testing the throughput of the switch, no? I would like a thorough benchmark for everything possible so I can do an accurate writeup for my system.

    thanks !
