Re: Running Iperf in Daemon mode -> no prompt
It does return to a shell prompt but it may put output on the screen on
top of it. You can run iperf -s -D > [some random file] and then there
will be no info printed to screen and the process ID will be in [some
random file] if you need it later. In a "perl" environment this should not
be an issue.
