Iperf is a tool for active measurements of the maximum achievable bandwidth
on IP networks. It supports tuning of various parameters related to timing,
protocols, and buffers. For each test it reports the bandwidth, loss, and
other parameters.
This version, sometimes referred to as iperf3, is a redesign of an original
version developed at NLANR/DAST. iperf3 is a new implementation from scratch,
with the goal of a smaller, simpler code base, and a library version of the
functionality that can be used in other programs. iperf3 also a number of
features found in other tools such as nuttcp and netperf, but were missing
from the original iperf. These include, for example, a zero-copy mode and
optional JSON output.
Note that iperf3 is NOT backwards compatible with the original iperf.

- update to 3.6
* A new --extra-data option can be used to fill in a user-defined
string field that appears in JSON output.
* A new --repeating-payload option makes iperf3 use a payload pattern
similar to that used by iperf2, which could help in recreating
results that might be affected by payload entropy (for example,
* -B now works properly with SCTP tests.
* A compile fix for Solaris 10 was added.
* Some minor bug fixes for JSON output.  In particular, warnings for
debug and/or verbose modes with --json output and a fix for
JSON output on CentOS 6

- update to version 3.1.3
* fixes [boo#984453] [CVE-2016-4303] JSON parsing vulnerability
* also includes support for fair-queueing, per-socket based
pacing of tests on platforms that support it (currently recent
Linux distributions), as well as several other fixes.

2015-12-14 - msvec@suse.com
- update to version 3.1.1
* Minor bugfixes
2015-11-30 - p.drouand@gmail.com
- Update to version 3.1
* SCTP support has been added (with the --sctp flag), on Linux,
FreeBSD, and Solaris (issue #131).
* Setting CPU affinity now works on FreeBSD.
* Selection of TCP congestion now works on FreeBSD, and is now
called --congestion (the old --linux-congestion option works
but is now deprecated).
* A new -I option for the server causes it to write a PID file,
mostly useful for daemon mode (issue #120).
* A --logfile argument can now force all output to go to a file,
rather than to a file.  This is especially useful when running an
iperf3 server in daemon mode (issue #119).
* Various compatibility fixes for Android (issue #184, issue #185),
iOS (issue #288), NetBSD (issue #248), Solaris (issue #175, issue
[#178], issue #180, issue #211), vxWorks (issue #268).
* A --udp-counters-64bit flag has been added to support very
long-running UDP tests, which could cause a counter to overflow
(issue #191).
* A --cport option to specify the client-side port has been added
(issue #207, issue #209, issue #239).
* Some calculation errors with the -O feature have been fixed (issue
* A potential crash in the iperf3 server has been fixed (issue #257,
issue #258).
* Many miscellaneous bug fixes.
* Consumers of libiperf can now get the JSON output for a
just-completed test (issue #147).
* Detection of various optional features has been improved to check
for the presence or absence of platform functionality, not the name
of platforms.
* Out-of-tree builds now work (issue #265).
- Do not provide static library
- Update iperf-3.0.5_disable-profiling.patch > iperf-disable-profiling.patch

- iperf 3.0.11
* This maintenance release adds a -1 flag to make the iperf3
execute a single test and exit, needed for an upcoming bwctl
release. A few other bugs are also fixed.
