How to get the BW details from the router

hi,

a lil info would help us answer your query. what termination or service are your referring to (metro-e, MPLS or DSL) and what router are you using? if this is a stub network (i.e. using a default route towards ISP next-hop IP address), then i would suggest to run an iperf test to get the best results.

How to get the BW details from the router

Hi John,

Thnx for the reply, Service is MPLS and yes it is a stub network. It would be great if you can tell be how to do this iperf test, when i googled this i found this one to be a software . Is it possible to check without a software i.e directly by logging into router.

Re: How to get the BW details from the router

Hi,

There's a hidden command in Cisco routers to verify this. I haven't personally used this on our routers but there were some discussions recently on this topic. You could also ask your SP to do Iperf test for you.
