    Question Can I use kali, to measure the performance of a network?

    I have to verify a network, and I would like to know if I can use kali to get some parameters, such as:
    Bandwidth.
    Performance.
    Latency
    Etc...
    Any other parameter that can be measured.

    Any ideas, what commands can I use?

    I really appreciate it guys
    regards

    Yes you can, and those tasks can be done under any linux. Kali is not focused on that area so you'll have to find tools by yourself. One tool to test network performance is called iperf and google can help you find others.

    iperf3 is in kali linux repositories (and in debain, ubuntu, arch etc...) and works like a charm, very easy to use.
    Code:
    apt show iperf3
    Package: iperf3
    Version: 3.1.3-1
    Priority: optional
    Section: net
    Maintainer: Raoul Gunnar Borenius <borenius@dfn.de>
    Installed-Size: 41,0 kB
    Depends: libc6 (>= 2.11), libiperf0
    Homepage: http://software.es.net/iperf/
    Download-Size: 18,4 kB
    APT-Manual-Installed: yes
    APT-Sources: http://http.kali.org/kali kali-rolling/main amd64 Packages
    Description: Internet Protocol bandwidth measuring tool
     Iperf3 is a tool for performing network throughput measurements. It can
     test either TCP or UDP throughput.
     .
     This is a new implementation that shares no code with the original
     iperf from NLANR/DAST and also is not backwards compatible.
     .
     This package contains the command line utility.
    There are also versions for mac and windows so you can use it in a multi-system environment
