benchmark node? - boatman - 08-17-2018

is there a way to stress test a node? like some sort of benchmark?
how would it even be measured? transfers/sec? 
I want to know if over clocking improves anything. 
or are there any utilities that will let me know the throughput of the node or max through put?

i KNOW THIS IS A LOT OF QUESTIONS BUT I THINK THEY ARE GOOD ONES

There are no real stress tests out yet where you could test your skywire network. But I think it would be a good idea.

If you have a full 8 node cluster you should be able to use your network to the largest possible scale as 99% of whats being done at the moment is packet forwarding. This is not the case if you happen to have a 10G network where you would probably need about 10 or more nodes to max out your network, dependent of course on the network capability of your nodes. Soon that may change with some skyfiber applications that may not require much data but more computational power. But currently with skywire you just need to send packets on from where you got them.
