Test networking performance between two Linux machines

Let’s use iperf to measure networking performance. First, set a “server” machine.

iperf -s

From a “client” machine, run the test.

iperf -c <server_ip>

If you are having trouble getting the server’s IP, use ip addr show to find addresses used by the current machine in any connected networks.
