Ethr- A Network Performance Measurement Tool For TCP, UDP And HTTP

Ethr- A Network Performance Measurement Tool For TCP, UDP And HTTP



Ethr is a cross platform network performance measurement tool written in golang. 


The goal of this project is to provide a native tool for network performance measurements of bandwidth, connections/s, packets/s, latency, loss & jitter, across multiple protocols such as TCP, UDP, HTTP, HTTPS, and across multiple platforms such as Windows, Linux and other Unix systems.

Download

  • For Windows 10: https://github.com/Microsoft/Ethr/files/2640289/ethr.zip
  • For Ubuntu: https://github.com/Microsoft/Ethr/files/2640288/ethr.gz
  • For ArchLinux: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/ethr

Installation

Note: go version 1.10 or higher is required building it from the source.

Building from Source

git clone https://github.com/Microsoft/ethr.git
cd ethr
dep ensure -v
go build

Using go get

go get github.com/Microsoft/ethr

Using ArchLinux AUR

Assuming you are using yay (https://github.com/Jguer/yay):

yay -S ethr

Usage

Simple Usage

Help:
ethr -h

Server:
ethr -s

Server with Text UI:
ethr -s -ui

Client:
ethr -c <server ip>

Example:

// Start server
ethr -s

// Start client for default (bandwidth) test measurement using 1 thread
ethr -c localhost

// Start connections/s test using 64 threads
ethr -c localhost -t c -n 64

Complete Command Line

Common Parameters
-h                        Help
-no                       Disable logging to a file
-o <filename>             Log to the file specified by filename.
                          By default Ethr logs to ./ethrs.log for server & ./ethrc.log for client mode
-debug                    Log debug output

Server Parameters
-s                        Server mode
-ui                       Display text UI

Client Parameters
-c <server>                   Client mode, connect to name or IP specified by server
-t <b|c|p|l>                  Test to be done, b: bandwidth, c: connections/s, p: packets/s, l: latency
                              Default is bandwidth test
-p <tcp|udp|http|https|icmp>  Protocol to use, default is TCP
-n <number>                   Number of sessions/threads to use
-l <number>                   Buffer size to use for each request
-i <number>                   Number of iterations for latency test

Status

Protocol   Bandwidth Connections/s Packets/s Latency
TCP              Yes                  Yes                      No           Yes
UDP      Yes                  NA                      Yes           No
