based on the courses that I have taken I get a variety of network speeds based on choices such as same subnet, placement group, peered vpc.... I would like to get metrics to see differences for my self.
There has to be some tool that I can install to test, measure and report back to me network performace metrics between 2 hosts that will not generate a security alarm.
What tool would that be?
Generally, I just use:
fallocate -l 1G test.img
to create a 1G test file, then SCP it between instances. I'm sure there are better tools out there, but that's pretty straightforward and the transfer will tell you how long it takes.
