    The package 'RandomTools', which can be installed by first installing 'MetaRepository' (scroll down for instructions), contains both iperf and iperf3.

    The next step is go back to the firmware package manager, update the list, and install RandomTools.

    Thank you for so quick answer. Instruction mentioning something about "admin" directory in the root file system but in case of my NAS this directory does not exist (V5.21(ABAG.6)C0) so i am unable to create directory "zy-pkgs" below.
    I managed to find "\i-data\457e65fe\.system\zy-pkgs" directory but placing web_prefix over there does not change the content o All Aps after refresh.
    Any idea how to proceed ?

    previous question no longer applies - it worked (showed in web interface) after creation "zy-pkgs" below \i-data\VOLUME_NAME\admin and placing the file there

    I managed to get there, but there is only one button (apply) there which is for blacklist ?
    I am not sure what is the next step in order to have this blessed iperf finally installed :(
