NOTE: This applies to both open source and commercial editions of Chocolatey.

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to https://chocolatey.org/api/v2. Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Enter your internal repository url

(this should look similar to https://chocolatey.org/api/v2)

4. Choose your deployment method:


choco upgrade iperf2 -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:


choco upgrade iperf2 -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"
$exitCode = $LASTEXITCODE

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0
}

Exit $exitCode

Description

A network traffic tool for measuring TCP and UDP performance. The goals include maintaining an active iperf 2 code base (code originated from iperf 2.0.5), preserving interoperability with iperf 2.0.5 clients and servers, preserving the output for scripts (new enhanced output requires -e), adopt known 2.0.x bug fixes, maintain broad platform support, as well as add some essential feature enhancements mostly driven by WiFi testing needs. Also added python code to centralize test control.

Iperf 2 vs iperf 3 major differences: Iperf 2 here has timing related stats including end/end packet latency w/histograms (clocks assumed to be synced); supports multicast including SSM; supports threaded operation; supports L2 length checks. Iperf3 is a "cleaner" code base per a rewrite; supports json output; uses a test connection; is single threaded.

Iperf2 and iperf3 do not interoperate.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).
