NLANR/DAST Releases New Software

The National Laboratory for Applied Network Research (NLANR) distributed
applications support team has released several software packages this
spring. Autobuf version 1.0 (,
an auto tuning-enabled FTP client and server, was released April 30. The
client, a modification of the NcFTP Client, enables Auto Tuning to
calculate optimal window sizes before files are transferred. The client is
compatible with most other FTP servers. The server, a modification of the
WuFtp FTP server, allows connecting clients to reset its buffer size
dynamically by using a SITE option.

Iperf 1.2 ( was released in early
April to offer new features that include the ability to run the server as a
daemon, to run the multicast server as a multithreaded server, and to run
the Iperf client in a mode that estimates the optimal window size and also
gives the bandwidth possible with various other window sizes. Iperf is a
TCP/UDP bandwidth measurement tool that is popular with developer and
research communities.

Iperf 1.2 is incorporated in Nettest (,
which is a secure, real-time network monitoring framework developed in the
Distributed Systems Department at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
The Nettest framework is designed to incorporate both existing and new
network tests and to run as either a daemon or an interactive process.
Written in C++, Nettest was tested and developed on Linux and Solaris systems.

NLANR is a distributed organization that is funded by the National Science
Foundation. The DAST team, based at NCSA, provides support for researchers
working with high-performance network applications. NLANR also includes the
engineering services ( team at the Pittsburgh
Supercomputing Center and the measurement and network analysis
( team at the San Diego Supercomputer Center.
