How To Install Iperf3 On Windows

I hope to find an answer rather quickly about this issue. I am currently trying measure RTT from an iOS device to my ubuntu desktop and server. However, I'm seeing that the iperf version on iOS is iperf3 (which is probably the reason why I keep getting an error message every time I try to perform a simple test). I am able to ping from the iOS device to my hosts.

So right now,I am trying to install iperf3 into my Ubuntu 14.04 desktop and server (with the notion that having the same versions will resolve the problem), but keep getting an error that iperf is not installed.

When I do apt-get iperf, it installs. But when I go to check the version (iperf -vl), I get version 2.0.5-3.

Any help I get is greatly appreciated.

Apparently someone named Patrick Domack built a version for Ubuntu Trusty (14.04). Edit: also works on 15.10.

Copy-paste this command and press ENTER:

As of Vivid (15.04), iperf3 is now available in the Ubuntu universe repository. It is also available with backports on Trusty (14.04). To get it:

If you are installing iperf3 onto a stock AWS EC2 Ubuntu image, you may also have to install a couple more packages to get it to run. So in total the process looks like this:

  1. sudo apt-get update
  2. sudo apt-get install make
  3. sudo apt-get install gcc --fix-missing
  4. sudo apt-get install lib32z1
  5. git clone https://github.com/esnet/iperf
  6. cd iperf
  7. ./configure
  8. make
  9. sudo make install
  10. sudo ldconfig

If you want to install the latest version of iperf3 on your Ubuntu/Debian distro without compiling it from sources and without adding any repository (in ppa:patrickdk iperf3 version is 3.0.7) you can use instruction from site.

I checked later and find that Ubuntu add that package to their official repo and it will be more preferable way to install in from them. I left that answer for people who need to install iperf3 on Ubuntu 12 and earlier versions.
