I suppose that depends on what kind of performance tests you actually
want to perform. For instance, to find out how many IKEv2 requests a
gateway can handle you could use the load-tester plugin. And to
determine the maximum throughput on the ESP level you could use iperf
after setting up a tunnel between two hosts (without load-tester).
For the load-tester plugin you can find some docs on our wiki  or in
the strongswan.conf man page.
