Hi All,

I've registered iperfd as a service name. The idea is for APs running code
such as openwrt can advertise and iperfd over multicast discovery
<https://www.rfc-editor.org/rfc/rfc6763>. Then clients can use the low
impact --bounceback option to get responsiveness data.

None of the code around service discovery is written nor does openwrt
release iperf 2.1.8 with it's releases. I think the openwrt iperf
maintainer isn't working on this anymore.

Service Name: iperfd
Transport Protocol: tcp, udp
Description: Network socket performance test
