iperf3.0 cannot be stopped (with widget /or gui)
After updating package to iperf3 the widget of welcome page ( services / iperf ) is broken (it's show a status of down and start / stop don't work anymore...) it must need an update i think .
So you can launch iperf3 server but the only way to stop it is a kill command .
I use 2.4.4-RELEASE-p3 (amd64)
Should be fixed in 3.0.1, give it a shot when it shows up.
Yeah 3.01 is listed, installed and tested

But it doesn't stop the server when you go back to iperf server page, it still running.. Where would the stop button be?
[2.4.4-RELEASE][firstname.lastname@example.org]/root: ps -ax | grep iperf3 41418 - I 0:21.94 /usr/local/bin/iperf3 -s
Also 3.7 has been out for quite some time (6-21-19), I take it they have not updated the freebsd packages yet?
It should be in Status > Services or the services widget
Ah, no way to put it say in the actual iperf page? That would be more intuitive I think.
Yeah its there, and that works.
No the way it's coded now since it's just an XML package not a PHP page that could do that easier. If you start it again with new settings it does kill the old session, though, so it's not like you'd keep running more and more copies.
whaoo that a quick fix. thanks !
I added shortcuts to iperf as well for the next release, so it will have a little service control button in the navigation bar. That should help, too. I found that XML-based packages like iperf were not actually able to setup shortcuts, so there was a bug I had to fix for that to work.
It will be in snapshots soon. That can't work for 2.4.4-p3 though, since it requires a fix in the base system.
