Hi,

I am interested to know how best to test if the bandwidth and contention ratios I am receiving from my service provider are exactly what I am paying for. I have heard that online speed test sites like speedtest.net are not really accurate. Are the better options out there?

1. You can use iSite to view the IP stats in real time

2. Your provider may have some sort of "speedtest" hosted on their network.

3. If your modem is connected to a router or switch that supports snmp you can use MRTG to graph the throughput of the appropriate interface.

4. If your modem is not connected to a router or switch that supports snmp you can write a script that collects and parses information from the ifconfig command on the modem and then passes it to MRTG or rrdtool.
