Title: Upstream speedtest and a flat-out long upload
Post by: Weaver on May 22, 2019, 01:26:26 PM
Whatís the easiest way of doing a big upstream speed test?

Second thing: I would also like to do an enormous flat-out upload to somewhere, just so that I can watch CQM graphs over many minutes and also may do a traffic capture of a TCP upload.

I would suggest performing either an scp or an rsync to a remote server, which is configured to act as an infinite black hole or data sink.

I am such a fool, I now remember - there is a super easy tool - the website https://testmy.net/upload has an upload test where you can manually choose the size of the upload and it can be set to be absolutely massive so that it takes ages. Itís also fairly accurate if you donít mind TCP as it doesnít seem too overloaded - donít know why the pipe is like or the server.

Cave : Be careful to change servers because itís American and it can put uk users on a bizarre choice of US-based server, so you need to choose London in settings. There is also a Ďmultithreadedí option which might be well worth a look. Donít know if that means multiple TCP connections, to saturate the pipe fully, otherwise why do I care about the internal design of their server app.

A little way down is an FTP server you can upload files to.

Thatís a really useful resource, Carl. I can also benefit from the fact there is a force-IPv4/6 feature. They give a url for http uploads too, I see.

That testmy.net speed tester is really sophisticated. It has all kinds of unusual feature such as a repeated automatic test facility where you leave it alone and it does a speed test every hour, twelve times and then gives a report.
