From my case. My synology is DS1815+. My CPU Model is Avoton. My DSM Version is 6.1.

I went to  http://www.jadahl.com/iperf/DSM_6.1/, and download below file.

[   ] iperf_avoton-6.1_3.2-1.spk 13-Oct-2017 14:21 1.7M

Next, Login to your Synology. Go to Package Center. Click on the Manual Install.

Select *.spk (depend what model you are using). In my case, my file is iperf_avoton-6.1_3.2-1.spk. Click and install. Once installed successfully. It will appear in the Installed list.

Once your iperf3 installed and running successfully. You can access to your SSH and run as server/client depend your usage.
