uperf


Unified Network Performance Tool


Productivity/Networking/Diagnostic

uperf is a network performance tool that supports modelling and replay of various networking patterns. uperf was developed by the Performance Applications Engineering group at Sun Microsystems and is released under the GNU General Public License Version 3.

uperf represents the next generation benchmarking tools (like filebench) where instead of running a fixed benchmark or workload, a description (or model) of the workload is provided and the tool generates the load according to the model. By distilling the benchmark or workload into a model, you can now do various things like change the scale of the workload, change different parameters, change protocols, etc and analyse the effect of these changes on your model. You can also study the effect of interleaving CPU activity, or think times or the use of SSL instead of TCP among many other things.

Some of the questions you could answer using uperf are

  • Bandwidth and latency (unidirectional and bi-directional) with different protocols like TCP, UDP, SCTP, SSL
  • Connection setup and teardown scalability for different protocols
  • Effect of noise on ongoing network connections
  • Does it matter if I use processes instead of threads to do network communication?
  • What is the L2 cache miss rate for connection setup?
  • Understand TCP, UDP, SCTP, SSL performance under a variety of conditions

and much more!
