Hello users

Overload!

  1. 1. If people use a website and the server doesn't have enough bandwidth to withstand the traffic will it either



Recommended Posts

I am excited to be here and I want to share things with you all, I can't wait to get started!

 

First of all; I would like to share http://steamcommunity.com/id/zenleststehum/(did you know that Steam uses Akamai to publish images?)

 

Second of all; I like coffee (Very)

 

Third of all; I love to test and compare hardware/ISP's you name it I'm testing it! (Nice stuff)

 

A question,

 

Does it matter if I change the server here https://testmy.net/mirrorFrom  Central US >> Dallas, TX USA to Europe >> London, GB I want to know what the best settings to test are!

 

Any general information to help me understand is greatly appreciated!

Pgoodwin1 said it nicely. 

With the same token, considering the data we access can and does pull from various locations globally. Therefore many times it is more than necessary to have the ability to test from / to multiple geographical locations to verify possible choke points in a network.

 

To gain insight as to your connection specific global weight, testmy.net has featured what it coins as 'multi' or multiple threaded tests, simultaneously pulling from as many as nine (9) specifically located test servers placed around the world, in some of the most highly connected fiber backbone sectors. With this, you are able to chose as little as one test point, with any combination of the nine, or select **all locations. 

 

This type of testing is mimicking how the web browser performs in real time as you browse sites that, as most are, implementing code which pulls resources from as little as one to the possibility of unlimited global resources. Printing unparalleled real world results.

 

This test resource, located at multi geographical location testing has the ability to inform you as to not only how well your ISP is peering with local as well as geographical providers, but how the chosen path is performing on any specific resource. 

 

** Dallas, TX US => testmy.net (shortcut: select by itself for auto mix)
 Washington D.C. => east.testmy.net
 Cloudflare (Global CDN) => cloud.testmy.net
 San Jose, CA US => west.testmy.net
 Google Pagespeed (Global CDN) => google.testmy.net
 Dallas, TX US => dallas.testmy.net (DNS resolution for targeted selection)
 London, GB => uk.testmy.net
 Melbourne, AU => au.testmy.net
 Hong Kong, CN => cn.testmy.net

Considering you are located in the UK, I would recommend you use the London server. (Mostly because the large majority of .uk sites are located within the UK, so it represents the typical speed from you to them.)

Other than that, the choice really doesn't matter except to change what routing paths are used and such. If you manually decide to select the San Jose server, you will likely choose a significantly different route than if you were to select the Dallas server, or the Washington D.C. server.

Thanks,

Another thing I want to share is that https is slower on some website than http because it's more encrypted than http

 

You can test https sites with Mercury  -- right click a large image from the source you want to test, 'copy image url'... paste it in Mercury and test away.

 

Some of my favorite Mercury tests that I perform best on are https.  So it's not always slow.

 

e.g. lh4.googleusercontent.com (all of a sudden this one slowed down for me, to like 1/10 of normal - lol - usually a consistent performer), secure.netflix.comlh3.googleusercontent.com

 

Since you mentioned this I made it so you can see the URI scheme when you hover.  That's useful information.

 

Considering you are located in the UK, I would recommend you use the London server. (Mostly because the large majority of .uk sites are located within the UK, so it represents the typical speed from you to them.)

 

People in some countries will notice that they're automatically defaulted to servers closer to them than the Dallas server.  I still believe that there is more value in a test at distance, these servers are regional.  If you're very close to the server, say >10ms, you should definitely test out further to see what you're really getting. (EB I know that you know this, I'm explaining this for others. :razz:)

this tool is extremely valuable in trending long term performance data. i use it with the same test file sizes every time. i also try to test at close to the same time of day each time, but also try to take data at different times of day too to sort of randomize the data. When you look at the average over 1, 7, 30, 90, 180, etc days and compare the averages you can see if you're trending down, flat or up over time. and since you can select on the plot points, you can look at the problem points to see what time of day the problems were occurring. When the trend is down, it's potentially an equipment degradation or it's showing you an issue with the ISP; either an overload of customers on your local route or on one of the ISP's rented lines from other companies. The time of day data is helpful in clearing your equipment i.e. when you have certain times of day when the speeds are very good and stable, and another time of day it isn't, then it's not likely a problem with your equipment (although that's not 100% certain as big temperature swings can aggravate hardware problems if they're there). 

 

there's certainly lots of other value in the tools here other than trending the speed database, especially when there is a problem and you're troubleshooting. maybe it was already obvious about the trending, if it was, this is just a good plug for CA3LE's site.

thanks dude  :evil6:

 

Your post gives me an idea.  I'm going to make the auto test do a new trick... it will take me a little time to hash out but it will be a useful addition.

Hello folks, how are you all? I'm new here, from Brazil and my name is Bruno.

 

I want to know somethings about Testmy.net. How work the servers? I must use an especific server for Brazil or all servers have the same result?

 

I use optic fiber's internet from a company called Netell, and they are new with this 'new' tecnology in my city.

 

Can I use the results to receive my full internet speed hired?
