     73'''How do I fix it?'''
     74
     75On CentOS you need to [http://centoshowtos.org/network-security/iperf/ add the EPEL repo]:
     76{{{
     77sudo rpm -ivh http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/x86_64/epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm
     78}}}
     79
     80Then you should be able to install `iperf` as normal:
     81{{{
     82sudo yum install iperf
     83}}}
