    DC test

    Ditto on the DC server's re-test option - it initiates tests back on the Dallas server. It seems to be how the linking is coded. Everything is set to: testmy.net/{whatever} After evaluating the scope/purpose of the links, it would be assumed that not all links need to be "mirrored" - examples: /Home - If you type testmy.net, you are going to hit testmy.net just like "www.testmy.net" will hit testmy.net - don't you love how the Internet works? - Once seasoned visitors know their preferred server, they can simply enter/bookmark a link to {MIRROR}.testmy.net /Forum - I would assume one would want this on the main server, or at least all in one place - in the future...possibly backing up to the other servers as a means of fallback should the original host go down. --- As for the other main links and dynamic links, like "Re-Test (same size)", they need to reflect: {MIRROR}.testmy.net I'm tickled with the shape it is in now though - A. It works, B. So far, manually entering dc.testmy.net/{whatever} does not kill anyone I hope the changes aren't a headache and look forward to the expansion of testmy.net with additional test mirror locations.
  2. Some traces run during a few tests against Dallas are still randomly showing a problem from here.

  3. Here's another test, this time using the maximum size of 200MB: SWEET! I do not know if me being close to DC has any effect, but who cares. I'll take excellent results anytime!!! TWC Road Runner peers in Herdon, VA, so at least it has a small trip to DC from there and I can see their peering agreement seems to work out nicely when it comes to most services run out of DC and surrounding areas.
  4. Not bad at all - but you did not have to go through all of this... Thank you!!! That is the least I can say! Almost always testing against the DC server, the tests are over my lines rated speed of 15 mbps, averaging 17.35 mbps for 11 randomly run tests over the past three hours!!! One or two of the tests somehow were launched from the Dallas server ( I guess it is due to some configurations you are still working on, and I did not include them in the above average ), but DC seems like they have their routing/peering in great shape. As for the tests that hit the Dallas server, they were still well below my lines rated speed. I hope your host finds whatever the bug is for your Dallas server and squashes it.
  5. I've been conducting speed tests using your service for a while now. I would use various services to check my speed and also participate in the SamKnows Broadband testing - all speed tests used to agree with one another from service to service, with the exception of speedtest.net - which always shows results inflated by PowerBoost. I fully understand the technical aspect involved, including peak hours congestion of the Internet and other issues that can affect measurements. On September 27, my area completed upgrades with Docsis 3.0 and was far enough along with the upgrade, they went ahead and bumped the speeds up for the lower Standard and Turbo tiers. I subscribe to the Turbo Tier, which was 10 mbps, and after the bump in speed, the tier is now rated at 15 mbps. Since this upgrade, I have never been able to consistently test up to the 15 mbps full speed of my connection against specifically testmy.net. I have run HTTP tests, FTP tests, Java Tests, Flash Tests, etc - and do not seem to have many problems with testing from any service except this one. I do not understand where the problem is. A quick snapshot of what I have here: - A brand new (six-month old) RCA DCM425 cable modem provided by TWC. - A Linux firwall/router running ClearOS using an Intel d510mo Atom system I threw together with 2GB RAM and a 500GB HD. .....- feeding into a TrendNet 1Gbps switch with the following connect to the switch: ..........- Two PC's, ..........- One SamKnows testing device (operating in bridge mode, with nothing connected to it directly) ..........- and a Vonage adapter connected to this switch. - All connections are using CAT-6 I first realized I was not running QOS on the Linux firewall/router, and had an idea to turn it on and see what would happen. Once I did this on September 27, I started being able to test to my maximum line rate of 15 mbps against testmy.net. Though I do not understand why this would have any effect on anything - it should not. What was weird though, is when I would turn off QOS, the tests would indicated lower speeds, and when I turned it back on, it would indicate full rated speeds. All of this occurring on September 27 - 29. Once I started receiving results that were steady and satisfactory, I left QOS on and called it fixed. A few days passed and I come back to check speeds again - now there is nothing I can do to even come close to 15 mbps. Again, traceroutes are not showing anything wrong. I even took and directly connect my PC to the cable modem and the results were still low (6 - 10 mbps for a 15 mbps connection). These tests were conducted repeatedly night and day Oct 1 and Oct 2 I did not record the PC's connection ID or log in for the direct connected tests, but I am fully aware of the connection ID running my normal setup. It is 160470957976. I have no other problem with any one speed test not showing my connections maximum rated speed - even during peak hours. A quick history on my connection... Up until July 14, 2011, my connection had been running horrible for 10 months. A combination of a congested cable node in addition to other things the cable company was doing wrong were to blame. It was finally resolved and everything has been smooth sailing until now. I first though - great, my cable company has screwed up the connection again, but it is not - and is only with connections to testmy.net I am experiencing problems. It is odd and I am curious to know what is going on here. I love the testmy.net service, but it does not currently love me for some reason. I suspect it is a peering problem, and not on TW's part... Every where else I honestly have no issues. Below is a traceroute I run multiple times during a speed test I performed before hitting POST. I do actually see several problems in these traceroutes between hops 7 & 8 where hop 8 spikes close to or over 200ms: 203.466 ms 186.419 ms 186.297 ms 53.254 ms 241.074 ms 241.300 ms 236.022 ms 220.118 ms 220.042 ms Again, these traces were run while I was running the actual speed test. Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/db/6BeiOJf There is even one trace below that indicates a spike between hop 6 & 7 of: 29.847 ms 172.769 ms 172.683 ms These traceroutes are run directly from my firewall/router, so they start reading hop one at my cable modem's gateway address and not the IP of the connection...
