Building iperf3, as with most tools of this type, is a fairly straightforward operation. The instructions in this section assume that the source distribution has already been unpacked.
iperf3 requires few (if any) dependencies on common operating systems. The only known prerequisites are listed here.
In many cases, iperf3 can be built and installed as follows:
./configure && make && make install
In some cases, configuration might fail. If this happens, it might
help to run
./bootstrap.sh first from the top-level directory.
By default, the
libiperf library is built in both shared and
static forms. Either can be suppressed by using the
--disable-static configure-time options.
