  1. testmy.net perfection

    And the 3.7% difference between what you set in pfSense (1000 Kbps) and your TMN speed test result (964 Kbps) can be accounted for in overhead. TCP Over IP Bandwidth Overhead
  2. Two different test results? B/S going on?

    Like mudmanc4 said, both are correct. But (it looks like) your route to the US has more variables affecting your speed along the way. Where are you located?
  3. Building my own testmy.net server

    iperf is excellent for this. In the future the ability to host your own TMN speed test will return in a new, easier to install form.
  4. I'm not really sure why it was disabled, it used to be an option. I think there was an issue with it at some point, it was disabled and just never re-enabled. You can select cloud.testmy.net from the multithread selection now. Let me know how it works for you. Thanks for pointing that out too.
  5. Two different test results? B/S going on?

    When I look at your results I see that when you're signed in you have selected the United Kingdom locale. This sticks to your sign in, it also remembers this setting when you're not signed in. And these settings are separate. The way the program sees it, when you're not sign in your ID is you "COMP_ID" this is a mathematical computation on your IP address. If you share that IP address, you'll share the comp ID. When you sign in this switches over to using your username as the primary key. You're still stored by comp_id but primarily stored by username. In future versions I may make it share the settings or import the settings. For now, keep in mind that your sign in has separate settings. Once you sign in your settings change to the settings you had set last time you signed in. https://testmy.net/stats/?&t=c&d=01072018&x=1&l=25&q=228656468992 See the UK flag next to the faster result. Your results will vary based on the selected mirror.
  6. Two different test results? B/S going on?

    Shouldn't have any affect on your results. The program is the same if you're logged in or not. Are you sure this wasn't an anomaly? There are variations in the program if you're logged in but none of which have any affect on results. They give you additional testing options not available to standard users.
  7. Kernel memory Leaking

    Intel's CEO has some explaining to do about selling all of his shares right before their public announcement on this. http://www.businessinsider.com/intel-ceo-krzanich-sold-shares-after-company-was-informed-of-chip-flaw-2018-1 https://gizmodo.com/intel-says-ceo-dumping-tons-of-stock-last-year-unrelate-1821739988 He sold all but the number of shares he must hold to remain CEO (250,000). My first take from this flaw... don't be storing private keys to sensitive information (like cryptocurrency) on shared Intel virtual machines right now. (or ever)
  8. Happy New Year TMN 2017-18

    Happy New Year!
  9. EXPORT button sometimes missing

    I'll change that for you soon. I don't think that really needs to be limited like that.
  10. EXPORT button sometimes missing

    It only shows up on the account your logged in under. So when your signed in under "Exede Dish B" the button will only show on "Exede Dish B" results page.
  11. Thank you Sean, all of those issues should be resolved now.
  12. The same logic where more people are likely to post negative reviews than positive ones. You're probably right, to a degree. I think there are also plenty of people who test here on sunny days. If that is true, it's true across the board with all providers. They're all being judged using the same method. In my experience, the better providers always perform better and rank higher here. Is any of this perfect, no. Will it ever be perfect, no. Will I try, definitely. After TMN's recent full switch to https (SSL) settles in with the search engines I have an upgrade to the host stats pages you mention. It aggregates a much broader range and I think it better represents the highlighted ISP, city or country's speed because it won't just be showing you the logs like it does today. It will unlock a huge amount of information that TMN has been calculating and storing in private databases for a very long time now. So look for that tool to become higher resolution in the near future.
  13. Cat 5 and Cat 6 Cables Questions...

    For a short distance at those speeds there's no difference. If you have Cat-6E or Cat-6A use them but the main benefit of cat-6 over cat-5 is the shielding around the cable. Allows for less interference so you can run longer distances. Cat6A can also maintain 10 Gbps over 328 feet where cat-5e can only do 1 Gbps (up to 100 meters or 328 feet). Here's a nice article on the subject: Cat5 vs Cat6 Cables: What are the Differences?
  14. Keep in mind the adjustments to the 2010 Open Internet Order now require ISPs to be transparent about any content blocking, throttling or paid prioritization. If you ever feel like that's happening and they aren't being transparent, please post it on the Internet for others to see. I don't expect ISPs to prioritize or de-prioritize TMN traffic any more than they did prior to 2015 when Net Neutrality was enacted. What I do expect to see is premium access to things that we shouldn't have to pay for... and extra billing for bandwidth for those services if you don't pay your ISP for a premium lane to those services. And THAT is BS. --- but I wouldn't expect to see that in 2018, they're just setting up the prerequisites. https://www.fcc.gov/restoring-internet-freedom
