Does TestMy Offer Indefinite Length Bandwidth Test?

Recommended Posts

Hello. I wanted to know if there's possibility to set bandwidth data test to indefinite or set time for how long I want to test. Is this possible? I need to test equipment and connection for a few hours both downstream and upstream.

 

Thanks

Sure does.

 Please have a look at the automatic testing section where there are many variables that can be set to your specific needs.

You shouldn't have to... or want to test that often.

 

Keep in mind, it takes bandwidth to test bandwidth.  While you're testing, ideally you suck up ALL of your available bandwidth.  If you're testing too often you'd be degrading your own networks.

 

When you do 5 minute auto test intervals you should only do so for short periods.  Otherwise the test is counter productive to the faster, smoother more reliable Internet everyone is trying to accomplish here.   :wink:

 

 

Addition:

Having said that... I have some special things I'm working on that have test intervals in seconds and require almost no bandwidth.

 

To be one of the first to know when this is released vote on the TMN Beta Program topic.

I am also testing internal ISP network and home LAN and wireless network and wondered if TestMy offers something for this. I can test ISP network but through SpeedTest.net which is limited in functionality. Same with home LAN and wireless network. In these both cases I have limited amount of data to test against with SpeedTest.net.


Interesting. I had 5 test runs of 200MB each from UK to Israel and speed almost matched if not actually matched what my ISP offers. However after I did same with US Dallas server, the speed dropped 3-5 fold. Something with peering or under-surface sea mediterranian cable leading to US? I wonder how that would be with other ISP... Maybe I can compare it with other local users who did same?

No LAN option, used to but that program is closed and may be rebuilt and re-released eventually.

 

International routing can kill your speed.  Oversold, congested international peering/transit are to blame.  Distance is also a factor in itself but I see people pull hundreds of Mbps from the opposite side of Earth so it's less of a factor if the connection between are quality.

 

My connection here in Colorado significantly drops crossing the ocean too...

My speed drops 5X by the time I get to Australia.  But I still feel like I'm getting decent speed everywhere.  If the route was better I might be able to maintain nearly full speed everywhere... it's better than it used to be but nowhere near my dream of how the Internet should be.  We're getting there though...

What determines optimal route? Switches that route client based on their load and clients location? If you are trying to access server in Australia today and experiencing 5x times slower rate could you connect tomorrow again and exprience no slowdowns because you are now routed through little loaded switch?
