To benchmark your network before doing the transfer test an iperf instance is running at Glasgow.

Download the source ./configure and make all. You do not have to install it just pick the binary that is under src.

 ./iperf -c -p 27890

will test with one tcp stream. Ideally you should try with the number of streams specified for the grid-ftp

 ./iperf -c -p 27890 -P 10
