I would like to test what my effective download speed is on my debian box. It's directly connected to a FTTH 100/100 connection but I want to know what I'm getting out of that. It used to be 93 mbit or something like that (tested with iperf running on a server at my isp)but lately I've been having some problems regarding slow connections. What I would like to do is test both down and upload speed at the same time but I don't have much resources available but my own debian box on these speeds. How would I be able to fully test the connection for say about 5 minutes.
For the download I was thinking scripting something in bash starting multiple instances using
wget -O /dev/null http://speedtestserver/1000mb.bin
or something like that.
Any tips for doing the same on uploading here?
thanks in advance, Steven
tl;dr internet seems slow, short speedtest says it's okay but I want to test for a longer duration.
