Description-en: Network performance tool using MPICH2 MPI
NetPIPE is a protocol independent performance tool that encapsulates
the best of ttcp and netperf and visually represents the network
performance under a variety of conditions. By taking the end-to-end
application view of a network, NetPIPE clearly shows the overhead
associated with different protocol layers. NetPIPE answers such
questions as: how soon will a given data block of size k arrive at its
destination? Which network and protocol will transmit size k blocks
the fastest? What is a given network's effective maximum throughput
and saturation level? Does there exist a block size k for which the
throughput is maximized? How much communication overhead is due to the
network communication protocol layer(s)? How quickly will a small (< 1
kbyte) control message arrive, and which network and protocol are best
for this purpose?
This package measures network performance using the MPI protocol, a
Message Passing Interface frequently used in parallel processing, and
which uses in turn TCP as its underlying transport. The implementation
of the MPI standard used by this package is that provided by the mpich
