If anyone needs a per-compiled iPerf.exe, no need for cygwin libraries,
lemme know.

It's a great tool!

iperf might be able to do what you need and there are Windows builds

standard ICMP pings aren't appropriate if you just want packet loss
info?  Obviously every platform worth using has ping built in.

 In UDP mode, iperf sends at 1 Mbps by default.  You change
the rate with the -b flag.   There's an iperf-2.0.5-cygwin
build floating around for Windows.
