Is there some software to measure Internet speed and show where the slowest element is?
I use OpenSuse 11.1 and KDE although Im happy to set up a user using Gnome.
Just recently my browsing speed dropped to almost nothing ...I used http://www.broadbandspeedchecker.co.uk/
to measure my speed and it gave a very slow result 30kb/sec ....usually its around 3000kb/sec. I rang my ISP's helpdesk and they told me my ADSL connection was fine. Two minutes later it was back to normal! Hmmmmm
I know the internet speed varies from time to time ...I guess depending on how many are using it and for what. But..
I suspect that my ISP was restricting my speed and Im looking for a tool that will tell me which part of the internet is the "slowest"
I would also welcome pointers to information about internet speed and what causes it to change.
Ive looked at other posts here ..they recommend mrtg and gkrellm. I cant see how they would do what I want..which is to try to locate the "constriction".
Thanks for any help
