The following figure identifies the required physical configuration of two servers equipped with supported network adapters connected back-to-back.

Figure 1. Test setup

  • Two servers are equipped with supported network adapters and connected with a single cable between the supported interfaces.
  • The supported interfaces are configured with an IP address so that traffic can pass between them. Use ping to verify connection.
  • Onload and netperf are installed on both machines.
  • Wrk is installed on one machine, and nginx on the other.

If required, tests can be repeated with a switch on the link to measure the additional latency delta using a particular switch.
