OpenWRT is a version of the Linux operating system to run on embedded devices, in particular, in home routers and access points. We have developed an OpenWRT package repository that provides fixes for and new ports of several existing network measurement tools (including iperf, iperf3, shaperprobe and pathload) for OpenWRT and an extended JSON RPC API for LuCl (OpenWRT control interface) to collaborate with the Fathom extension on home network diagnosis.
