Hi Tobias,

You mean using iperf in conjunction with the load-tester plugin?
Or just using iperf alone, instead of strongSwan?
Could you please share an example?

No, the current implementation can only be used to test IKEv2 SA 
initiation.  If you want to generate traffic you have to do this by 
other means (either by modifying the plugin or using a tool like iperf).
