When you try to run iPerf3 on ESXi Arm Edition, the following message is displayed:
/usr/lib/vmware/vsan/bin/iperf3: line 2: syntax error: unexpected "("
The version of iPerf3 that comes with the Fling is not compiled for arm64. The solution is simple, just use an iPerf3 version + library that is compiled for arm64. If you don't want to compile it yourself, feel free to take this:

Run the following commands:
# esxcli network firewall set --enabled false # wget https://www.virten.net/files/esxi-on-arm/iperf3_3.1.3-1_arm64/iperf3 -P /opt/ # wget https://www.virten.net/files/esxi-on-arm/iperf3_3.1.3-1_arm64/libiperf.so.0 -P /usr/lib64/ # chmod +x /opt/iperf3
You should now be able to run iPerf3:
The solution does not persist a reboot. I'll see if I manage to create a VIB...
