bwbench is a tiny tool for measuring network bandwidth. It will connect to a given host and port and measure the incoming bandwidth. Combined with netcat you can measure your bandwidth. bwbench is GPL'ed.
Here is a screenshot:
Version 0.1 (24.03.04)
You have to run bwbench as shown here, where host is the host name to connect to and port is the port number:
bwbench host port
To measure the outgoing bandwidth of host A (respectively the incoming bandwidth of host B) first run netcat on host A:
cat /dev/zero | nc -lp some_port
Then connect to the netcat server with bwbench on host B:
bwbench A some_port
bwbench will show you now the incoming bandwidth of host B. Hit CTRL+C to stop.
