Benchmarking



  • I have been searching for some time to find a standardized page for benchmarking. Having such a site would help anyone looking to convert. Does anyone know of such a page or atleast testing methodology? I have multiple machines I can toy with to get some numbers and would like to contribute them to the community.



  • There isn't one.  Throughput will vary wildly based on traffic type (small packets vs large, tcp vs. udp, encrypted vs. not), what packages you have installed, and how those packages are configured.

    Yep, that. You could do worse than using iperf though. As long as you have the same packet size selected there are figures on the forum to compare for other hardware.
