Installing iperf on CentOS

Iperf is a tool that can be used to determine the network bandwidth available between two end points. On one system you run iperf in server mode and on the other you run it in client mode. On both hosts iperf will report the available bandwidth. E.g., below is the output from a system running iperf in server mode:

[root@localhost install]# [  4] local port 5001 connected with port 55990
[ ID] Interval       Transfer     Bandwidth
[  4]  0.0-10.4 sec  3.00 MBytes  2.42 Mbits/sec

To install Iperf on a CentOS system with yum install iperf, you may need to configure the system to use the Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux (EPEL) repository, which you can do by issuing the command yum install epel-release. A repository is a source for software packages that can be installed with yum.
