    Hi community,

    Could anyone let me know how to test the throughput of an Access point at a specific location.
    I know that it depends on the signal strength but can not find the way to test it.

    Thank in advance.

    Yep, there are various tools out there to do these tests. Easiest (free-est) is setting up an iPerf test environment. Too much detail to go into here though to describe the setup.

    Hi Gareth,
    we have C5210 with v.10.41.10.014 and APs 38xx/39xx with same version, but we don't have iperf inside APs:

    /usr/bin
    M90# ls
    dbclient dropbearkey iked pmap rpcapd sftp-server vmstat
    dropbear dropbearmulti ntpclient ps2 scp utcpdump

    M90# iperf3
    -sh: iperf3: not found

    Any Idea??

    Thanks a lot

    I'd only see it on my 3912 & 3915 but not on 3705, 3825, 3801 (no other APs tested).

    So for me it look like that it's only included in the 39xx series.

    AP 3935 -ok.
