View Full Version : [all variants] testing Bandwidth/Speed with script

I would like to test my bandwidth - upstream and downstream - over a period of time, say via a cron job.

All the popular bandwidth test tools at sites like speedtest.net, dslreports.net - seems to be based on flash.. Is there a way to access/use these [or any other similar] tests via a script and capture the results?

Alternately, I could probably script wget/ftp some downloads - but I really need the upstream test as well. Any public ftp sites which will let me upload [and delete, of course] big files?

Appreciate any and all pointers... Thanks
