I'm running some performance tests on GNS3 (I know I shouldn't, but it is not until Friday that I will have the college lab available), and I'm trying to compare real BW or "speed" and theoritecal.
So if I just put the command : "show interfaces serial1/1"
Do I get the "theoretical" value of the link?
(MTU 1500 bytes, BW 1544 Kbit, DLY 20000 usec)
So when I run iperf from my loopback interface (PC1) (client side) to my Linux VM (server side) I get and average of BW= 1.1 Mbps.
Is is safe to say that the performance of the link is:
Performance = real BW / theoritecal BW = 71.24 %
This is the topology I use, and it goes from PC1 to PC2:
I expect the performance to be higher in a real environment since GNS3 emulates everything and it consumes too much.
This is my real PC specs: Intel i5 processor 8 GB of RAM
Thanks in advance! :)
