I can't figure out how to run IOmeter. Can you help me out? I want to test the speed between two computer connected with a gigabit network card.
IOmeter is used for testing access to block-based storage devices, not file-based Ethernet connections.
Take a look at the readme file that came with IOmeter when you downloaded it from Intel's site.
