iperf 2.0.7 Released
Description: OpenSS7 Old News.
Approved for Immediate Release
Jun 24, 2007
(Edmonton, Alberta -- Jun 24, 2007) OpenSS7 today announced Release 2.0.7 of the OpenSS7-modified iperf package. Iperf is a general purpose tool for measuring bandwidth and performance of the Internet Protocol suite. The OpenSS7 Modified OpenSS7 IPERF Utility package is an OpenSS7 Project release of the DAST iperf package configured to run with OpenSS7 Linux Native Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP).
The OpenSS7 IPERF Utility package provides primarily the iperf(1) C++ Language program that acts as either an Iperf server or client for testing connections and networking. The iperf(1) program is executed on one host in server mode and then executed on another (or the same) host in client mode. Characteristics of the connection or association can be altered when formed. Reporting formats and sample intervals can also be altered when the connection or association is formed.
This is a fork of the "Iperf" package released by the University of Illinois modified by the OpenSS7 Project for use with OpenSS7 SCTP (Stream Control Transmission Protocol). This OpenSS7 release of the package is based on the Iperf-2.0.0 release from the University of Illinois.
Modifications to the package are derived from the OpenSS7 SCTP implementation and are released under the GNU General Public License (GPL) Version 2. The Iperf tool itself is licensed under specific terms by the University of Illinois. Please see LICENSES for the University of Illinois Iperf copyright notices and licensing restrictions.
This is the OpenSS7 Project's seventh release of the University of Illinois iperf package, modified to work with the OpenSS7 Linux Native (Sockets) implementation of SCTP (Stream Control Transmission Protocol - RFC 2960). This package contains all of the necessary manual pages and files, and configures and installs against almost any 2.4 kernel, even production kernels.
This is the OpenSS7 Project's seventh release of the iperf package modified for OpenSS7 SCTP. This is the package that was used to perform the performance tests shown here.
This release is largely a maintenance release that provides support for more distributions an architectures as well as tracking feature updates on related packages (i.e. sctp-0.2.26).
Major features since the last public release are as follows:
This is a public stable production grade release of the package: it deprecates previous releases. Please upgrade to the current release before reporting bugs.
As with other OpenSS7 releases, this release configures, compiles, installs and builds RPMs and DEBs for a wide range of Linux 2.4 RPM- and DPKG-based distributions, and can be used on production kernels without patching or recompiling the kernel.
This package is publicly released under the GNU Public License Version 2 as well as the University of Illinois license (see LICENSE in the release for more information). The release is available as an autoconf tarball, SRPM, DSC, and set of binary RPMs and DEBs. See the downloads page for the autoconf tarballs, SRPMs and DSCs. See the iperf package page for tarballs, SRPMs, DSCs, and binary RPMs and DEBs.
