    Question Not sure if it goes here -- Speed test request

    Hiyall,
    Not sure if there is a section to get such sort of feedback from the wide userbase here on SP about speeds from ones server ?

    If this is at wrong place or not allowed stuff my bad.

    Could someone help me do a speed test off my new server and provide with what sort of download speeds you guys get and from what locations and what sort of maximum downloads speeds your isp provides you with.

    Thanks

    Getting about 300K/s from Drexel University's 256-core cluster

    Getting about 300K/s from Softlayer's Texas data center

    Getting about 300K/s from Amazon EC2 (US-East data center)

    Getting about 250K/s from Linode

    So I'd say you're capped around 300K unless other people were downloading at the same time

    No i do not think its a cap issue, seems more like network issue, all morning i have been getting really bad download speeds from multiple locations myself. Server is not able to download any faster either though from various speedtest file locations either.

    Would you happen to have any speedtest file on one of your servers that i can try downloading off other server also and comparing speeds of 1 server versus the other one ?

    Thanks

    PS: mind testing again dan, i think some improvement took place since your reply.

    It's downloading much faster from you now (between 600K/s and 3M/s) but that's still slow. Here are some mirrors of your file to test against:

    http://platinum.awio.com/speedtest.zip (Softlayer Texas)
    http://polonium.awio.com/speedtest.zip (Amazon EC2 US-East)
    http://linode1.awio.com/speedtest.zip (Linode New Jersey)

    Thanks dan,
    I could not go anything over 2Mb for downloads not sure if 100mbps port can hit any higher speeds. Would you mind if i saved your speedtest links on file for future references if required ?

    Below are the results from the server end :

    I don't really know, I'm not a network guy, but I can download from most of those servers at well over 20M/s (takes less than 2 seconds to get the 40MB file), so it's your end that can't go faster.

    You could try host-tracker.com and see how fast the file loads from servers in different parts of the world. I'm not sure if 37mb isn't too big of a file for this service, but I know that 10mb files work fine.

    For me, in Eastern Europe, it's at about 50KB/sec. Not good. :S

    Is that your max ?

    ldcdc i tried that site, both for my server and for that of my providers, similar results, if in uk its getting that ugly speeds must be routing networking that our provider has. I wonder if there are more UK users here to test it and see if infact provider needs to arrange for some other backbone or something.

    Thanks

    The suggested sources are pretty good. I believe most of visitors here are from UK so I believe soon someone will help you.
    Good luck
