Measure bandwidth in Marionnet

Asked by kostadin on 2016-06-16


I am trying to measure the bandwidth between nodes in a marionnet network. I wonder if it is possible to do it with iperf, I tried with host and it hasn't the package installed. I tried to installed but I can't.

Is there any way to measure the bandwidth in this program?

Thanks in advance,

Maybe, you can install it from sources : Jean-Vincent Lodo say it's better, because apt-get and aptitude can be very problematic for Marionnet (see
« il vaudra mieux installer les logiciels par les sources (make, make install), plutôt que par apt-get (ou aptitude). En effet, ce dernier touche à un ensemble très importants de fichiers, ce qui cause de gros problèmes au couple detechnologies UML-COW que Marionnet utilise. ).

In spite of this warnig, you can install iperf with apt-get.
1) in /etc/apt/sources.list add at the end of each line « contrib non-free »
2) Copy your /etc/resolv.conf from your host computer into your guest computer.
3) Add and connect a Gateway
4) dhclient eth0 -v
5) apt-get update
6) apt-get install debian-archive-keyring
7) apt-get update
8) apt-get install iper
And it is installed !
