Ethernet performance with Netperf

This page provides information about ethernet performance. Script should generate dokuwiki format. 
Thanks for sending your results (Full script output log + information about your hardware - devel board 
or information about your configuration).

Install guide

  • Install netserver on your PC
    • run netserver
[root@monstr ~]# netserver 
Starting netserver at port 12865
Starting netserver at hostname 0.0.0.0 port 12865 and family AF_UNSPEC
  • Download test script here (834 B, 8y ago) (quick release)
    • Unpack to your petalinux-dist/romfs folder (Check file permission - 755 or 777)
    • Please check your kernel hacking (make linux_menuconfig) and disable all options
    • Build your kernel with fs (I tested this script on both kernels - MMU and noMMU)
  • Boot linux kernel
    • check if is netmeasure.sh script there
  • Run the script: netmeasure.sh -h 192.168.0.1 -c 10
    • Parameters: -h host IP where netserver is, -c count

ICMP test

# ping -f 192.168.0.102 -c 1000000

Xilinx notes

Network Performance

It's a new day and even the simplest embedded systems often require Ethernet connectivity. Xilinx FPGAs provide a variety of Ethernet IP that can be easily used with MicroBlaze with the following results.
