Hey all,
I was wondering if anyone knew of any applications that would allow me to see how much data per sec I can push from two boxes on my network. Heres the catch, One box is windows, and one is Mac OSX. (only 2 with 10/100/1000)
Now, I can compile -most- linux/unix apps on the macosx box, but I dont really know of any..
Any suggestions?

I was able to compile it under osx
BUT
it says I can do 200kBps, and this is over gigabit with prefab cat6 cables

Code:
-------------------[2004-09-27 00:34:39]--------------------
-   User:   0.0%                                           -
- System:   0.0%                                           -
-  Total:   0.0% (nan% System)                             -
-                                                          -
-   Send: TCP:      208.0 kB/s | UDP:        0.0  B/s      -
-   Recv: TCP:      000.0 kB/s | UDP:        0.0  B/s      -
------------------------------------------------------------

Well then, try this one: http://dast.nlanr.net/Projects/Iperf/

Ohh and report back the speed, and if the ethernet controler is on 32bit/32mhz bus or faster. Mmm benchmarks :D

Edit: I just used the above program myself between windows 100mbit and linux 1000mbit:

Code:
TCP window size: 85.3 KByte (default)
------------------------------------------------------------
[  6] local 192.168.0.1 port 5001 connected with 192.168.0.8 port 3986
[ ID] Interval       Transfer     Bandwidth
[  6]  0.0-10.0 sec   108 MBytes  90.6 Mbits/sec
