Testing Network Performance Between Two Clients

Use this mode to test available bandwidth between two client computers, or a client and a server (for example, a Web Server). In this test, one host is designated as the server and the other as the client.

Before You Begin

  • Download the CvNetworkTestTool GUI workflow from the Commvault Store. For instructions, see Download Workflows from Commvault Store.
  • If the two hosts are separated from each other by a firewall, make sure the needed server port is open on that firewall (25000 is the default).


  1. From the CommCell Browser, click Workflows, and then right-click CvNetworkTestTool GUI > All Tasks > Execute.

    The CvNetworkTestTool GUI dialog box appears.

  2. From the Mode of execution list, select Host to Host and click OK.
  3. In the Enter the test inputs dialog box, select the server host from Host 1 and the client host from Host 2.
  4. Optional: Type or select values for the other available options in the dialog box as needed. The options are described in Verifying Network Connectivity in Client Mode.
  5. Start the test by clicking OK.
  6. When the test has completed, retrieve the results from your email Inbox. The associated log files are attached to the email for reference.

Note: The network throughput results are shown in MB/sec (megabytes per second).
