LANBench Alternatives

    LANBench is described as 'simple LAN / TCP Network benchmark utility. It is designed for testing network performance between two computers and is based on Winsock 2.2' and is an app in the Network & Admin category. There are nine alternatives to LANBench for a variety of platforms, including Windows, Mac, Linux, Android and Android Tablet. The best alternative is iPerf3, which is both free and Open Source. Other great apps like LANBench are JPerf (Free, Open Source), PerformanceTest (Paid), PPerf (Free, Open Source) and TamoSoft Throughput Test (Free).
