Hello,

Can you show me some common ways to check/test speed of my VPS without using tools like gtmatrix or pingdom. I want to check speed directly from my VPS. Is it possible?
For example, when I buy a new vps I can check old and new one, which is faster base on my testing?

Please guide
Thanks
Sorensen

There are a couple things you need to consider in relation to the speed you'll be downloading/uploading things. A lot of this has to do with geographical location and distance from the test node that you'll be downloading the file from. There is no real way to get an accurate test, however, Speedtest.net does have a SSH based utility that you can utilize if absolutely necessary.

Code:
$ wget https://raw.github.com/sivel/speedtest-cli/master/speedtest_cli.py
$ chmod a+rx speedtest_cli.py
$ sudo mv speedtest_cli.py /usr/local/bin/speedtest-cli
$ sudo chown root:root /usr/local/bin/speedtest-cli
It is straightforward to check your Internet speed with speedtest-cli. Running speedtest-cli command without any argument gets its job done.

Code:
$ speedtest-cli
This will automatically discover the closest Speedtest.net server (in terms of geographic distance), and report download and upload speed measured from the server.

If you want to share the speed test result, you can use "--share" option, which will allow you to share speed test result with others in an image format via Speedtest.net.

As said previously, there are a lot of factors that need to be considered when running these tests.

$ sudo mv speedtest_cli.py /usr/local/bin/speedtest-cli
$ sudo chown root:root /usr/local/bin/speedtest-cli
which directory i start running this code?
$ wget https://raw.github.com/sivel/speedtest-cli/master/speedtest_cli.py
from root?

/usr/local/bin/
I can move to another directory on my server instead of that?

$ speedtest-cli
run at bin directory?

Srr, I must ask these questions because I'm still new with controlling a vps :)

When you log into SSH just run the commands line for line, no need to move around or anything, everything is there.

from root?

you are not checking the exact speed of your vps. You are just checking how the speed is for the link between your vps and the server you upload/download from and the servers/routers in between.

Login to server as root and enter this command wget http://mirror.nl.leaseweb.net/speedtest/100mb.bin

You can find more test file here http://mirror.nl.leaseweb.net/speedtest/

[root@TQGK001 ~]# wget http://mirror.nl.leaseweb.net/speedtest/100mb.bin

Upload a 100MB file to your server - download it from your server. Look at the speed in the process.

EDIT: Keep in mind that this speed will be limited by the speed cap on your home internet connection, and with most BGP providers you won't see too much difference in speed because of this cap. Unless you're running a ultra high-speed connection at home, you won't get an accurate reading.

You are right :eek:hmy:

Exactly I want to check speed between my IP location and my VPS :)
Are there any ways?
