What is the best way to measure the network performance over the AERO-xxxx hotspot ?

Jump to solution

Hello,

I have a laptop connected to the Aero-xxx hostpot. I am trying to measure the network performance between the intel-aero and the laptop using netperf and iperf.

 

netperf gives me a throughput of 25Mbits/s

 

iperf shows about 50Kbits/stream for upto 10 client streams

 

Are there any specific tools or commands you recommend to measure the network performance for AERO-xxxx ?

Can you please advice ?

Hello RKura, Thank you for your interest in the Intel Aero Ready to Fly drone. You can measure the performance with any tool you like, there is no restriction. You can check more about the Drone on the available courses here: https://github.com/intel-aero/Documents/tree/master/course and more about Aero Network and System Administration here: https://github.com/intel-aero/meta-intel-aero/wiki/08-Aero-Network-and-System-Administration#network... Thank you and best regards, Eliza

I am trying to measure the network performance between the intel aero and my laptop both of which are connected to the AERO-xxxxxx hotspot. I used netperf and iperf for that. I dont think I got great Throughput numbers. Have you or anyone you know tried this ? If not, can you please give it a try and let me know what Throughput you see ?

 

Thanks

Hello RKura,

 

Below you have the results of my tests using ipref.

Thanks. When I run iperf I get ~50Kbits/s

 

iperf -c <ip> -p <port> -P <# of streams> -t 60

Each client stream shows a throughput of ~50Kbits/s

 

Any idea ?

Hello RKura, Thank you for your patience. We have tested in the lab and the throughput value for the command you have mentioned for us is 20~Mbits/s, so close to the value you get on netpref. Thank you, Eliza

How can we get better network performance over the hotspot ?

Hello RKura, You can improve the WiFi connection by changing the Antennas. Here is a guide that can help you in achieving that: https://www.instructables.com/id/Intel-Aero-Drone-Extending-Wifi-Range/ Thank you and best regards, Eliza

@ElizaD_Intel​ 

The article seems to talk about extending the WiFi range so the drone can fly farther. Would this also increase the throughput network performance we saw in netperf and iperf ?

Hi RKura, It will increase the network performance as well. We haven't tested it, but feel free to test it and share your results with the Community. Regards, Alexandra

Not really. If and when I have the time, I will look into using the new antennas.
