NAME

       netserver - a network performance benchmark server

SYNOPSIS

       netserver [-4] [-6] [-d] [-h] [-L name,family] [-p portnum] [-v verbosity] [-V]

DESCRIPTION

       Netserver  listens for connections from a netperf benchmark, and responds accordingly.  It
       can either be run from inetd or as a standalone daemon (with the -p  flag).  If  run  from
       inetd the -p option should not be used.

   OPTIONS
       -4     Use AF_INET (aka IPv4) addressing for the control and possibly data connections.

       -6     Use AF_INET6 (aka IPv6) addressing for the control and possibly data connections.

       -d     Increase  the quantity of debugging output displayed during a test (possibly at the
              expense of performance).

       -h     Display a usage string, and exit.

       -L name,family
              Set the local name and/or address family  for  the  socket  used  for  the  control
              connection.

       -p portnum
              Listen on the specified port.  This is used when running as a standalone daemon.

       -v verbosity
              Set the verbosity level for the test.

       -V     Display the netperf version and exit.
