Iperf is a well established tool for network diagnostics and performance information. In this piece Brent Salisbury gives a tutorial on how to use the tool with Docker. This lets network admins easily setup containers, run server-side and client-side tests, and destroy the containers in a few simple steps.
While many out there may be very familiar with Iperf, many might not be that comfortable in Docker. That’s why I love this tutorial, it doesn’t really assume any knowledge of Docker. It lays out the exact steps needed to get everything running, but also provides links and suggestions on how to make the tool more complex and useful down the line.
This tutorial assumes no working knowledge of Docker or Iperf3. If you don’t have Docker installed you can get it from here. More on Docker commands can be found here.
