Gigabit speed test anybody?

Ironically, two days later, I find myself in exactly the same  
position; needing an iperf box to test a 100Mb client connection  
against.

In a perfect world, this box would hang off of NYIIX (or Arbinet) and  
be able to sustain 100Mb of throughput for the duration of a couple of  
generic iperf tests that I need to perform at a client site in a  
couple of hours.

Thanks in advance...
