BE SURE TO READ THE MANUAL. EVEN THOUGH IT MAY BE OUTDATED. This is a brief readme file for the netperf TCP/UDP/sockets/etc performance benchmark. This is here mostly as a boot-strap. The real information is in the manual, which can be found in netperf.ps and online from http://www.netperf.org/netperf/NetperfPage.html. The sources, and a limited number of binaries, can be found from ftp://ftp.cup.hp.com/dist/networking/benchmarks/netperf/ . BE SURE TO READ THE MANUAL. EVEN THOUGH IT MAY BE OUTDATED. There is a COPYRIGHT file included. It is called COPYING because that is what autosomethingorother wanted. It is based on what the HP Legal Eagles gave me. I am not sure if the legalese is clear, but the intent is to say "Here is a benchmark. Use it in good health. Pass it along, port it, enhance it. You didn't pay for this tool, so don't expect it to be perfect ;-)" The rest of it is there to keep the layers happy... While the copyright is pretty much in spirit an "open source" one, it is not in letter - I never took the time to try to get it approved. If you feel strongly about the license of the code you use and want something under the GPL, consider netperf4: http://www.netperf.org/svn/netperf4/trunk Feel free to report netperf results in public forums, but please be excruciatingly complete in your description of the test envorinment. The old netperf database at: http://www.netperf.org/netperf/NetperfPage.html is no more - or rather the utilities for accessing it no longer run. The data is still present in the tree, albeit _VERY_ old now. There is an Internet mailing list devoted to netperf. It is called netperf-talk and it is hosted on netperf.org. Subscription requests should go to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please DO NOT SEND subscription requests to netperf-talk! If you run into severe difficulties, or are just feeling chatty, please feel free to drop some email to me - Rick Jones <email@example.com>. Be sure to include a meaningful subject lines. happy benchmarking, rick jones BE SURE TO READ THE MANUAL. EVEN THOUGH IT MAY BE OUTDATED.
