Tamosoft Throughput Test: Test the performance of your Wi-Fi and wired networks

We always use Iperf or JPerf for our tests, as this tool offers many configuration options, is totally free and available for any operative system. Today we will present you Tamosoft Throughput Test, a similar tool capable of configuring a QoS from the client’s perspective.

This program is also free, but it’s only available for Windows and compatible with the following versions of Microsoft’s OS:

  • Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8: 32 and 64 bits
  • Windows Server 2003, 2008, 2012: 32 and 64 bits

The tool is only 4MB; once you install it, you’ll see the menu for the client and the server. It’s very intuitive, as soon as you press START in the server menu, you’ll be asked for an IP of the client. Then simply input the IP (and the port, if you changed the default one).

This is show the GUI looks like:

You can choose between “Best Effort” or, for example, preset configurations for audio and video streaming. Here you can watch one of our tests, done in a virtual machine (which explains the high speeds):
