netperf Alternatives

netperf is described as 'Netperf is a benchmark that can be used to measure the performance of many different types of networking. It provides tests for both unidirectional throughput, and end-to-end latency' and is an app in the network & admin category. There are more than 10 alternatives to netperf for a variety of platforms, including Windows, Linux, Mac, FreeBSD and Docker. The best alternative is iPerf3, which is both free and Open Source. Other great apps like netperf are mtr, SmokePing, Packet Loss Test and JPerf.

netperf alternatives are mainly Internet Speed Test Apps but may also be Network Analyzers or Network Monitors. Filter by these if you want a narrower list of alternatives or looking for a specific functionality of netperf.
