Netperf is a software application that provides network bandwidth testing between two hosts on a network. It supports Unix domain sockets, TCP, SCTP, DLPI and UDP via BSD Sockets.[1] Netperf provides a number of predefined tests e.g. to measure bulk (unidirectional) data transfer or request response performance.

Netperf was originally developed at Hewlett Packard.[2]
