Is there a good software to analyze the latency on TCP/IP (Ubuntu system) connection between two computers and Wireshark does not work for me.

The measurement needs to be benchmarked and defined. My problem is that the tests are inconsistent and difficult to reproduce because of some built in features. So I need software that allows some advanced features like probing the kernel calls to the network etc...

  • This sounds like a very good question; although I am sure that more detail would make it easier to help you. Welcome aboard! I hope that you get your answer (if Wireshark can't help, then I doubt that even iperf can - did you try it? – Mawg Jul 30 '18 at 9:34

    If you give me a hint what is ambiguous or too vague I will give my best to explain. – Marko Bencik Jul 30 '18 at 9:38
  • I don't really know, it was just general advice. Probing kernel calls sounds like advanced user stuff to me. Until now, I have gotten along fine with iperf – Mawg Jul 30 '18 at 9:41

    It is not madness with the right flags in perf you can do it, my idea is iPerf, tcpDump and iptraf. But i thought maybe someone knows something that I do not. – Marko Bencik Jul 30 '18 at 18:56

    Here is a series of tools on github (github.com/caesar0301/awesome-pcaptools) – Marko Bencik Jul 30 '18 at 20:37
