Networking :: Find Out Download/upload Speed Of Each Slot?
Apr 13, 2010
from vuze(bit torrent client) it shows my total download speed to be 20.56 KB/s....while my network monitor tool shows a speed around 72.41 KB/s. Similar is the case with upload speed. In much simple words the download/upload speed that vuze shows appears to be less than that shown by the network monitor tool.I must mention that at the time vuze was running there was no other simultaneous downloads.I don't understand why this is so?Is there any tool that can give me the exact information of downloading & uploading speed or rather any tool that can give me the details of uploads/downloads presently going on.
I want to know if there any way to find out interface of Linux Box(Suse 9>)is onboard or externally attached (pci slot)?
Note:- This is a problem which I am facing in my work. In onsite server we need to configure n/w card too. So some time when we configure, I'm confusing which interface should be configured. Client insisting us to configure embedded(onboard) interface. How to find out that.
I am at a university where my bandwidth is severely capped. I can start several other computers near me and download at the limited speed simultaneously. Is there any way for me to share the download between the computers to get the cumulative speed?
It sounds weird but on Linux I can't find a browser that allows to set a download speed limit. I found an extension for Firefox but it works only on Windows. I know the existence of download managers like d4x, wget, jdownloader, etc... but some downloads can only be done by browser. I know trickle too but if I want to change the speed limit I have to 'restart' the command (interrupting the current download). Then I didn't find an extension for Chromium.
I have a Fedora 11 system and cbq.init-v0.7.3 in it. Now I want to restrict upload speed from my ftp server to Internet (eth1). According to docs I've made a simple file /etc/sysconfig/cbq/cbq- 00.inet_upload_restrict:
So as you can see I want to limit outbound traffic on eth1 from my ftp port 20 to any to the 800Kbit/s (100Kbyte/s). Now I do cbq start, it says: find: warning: you have specified the -maxdepth option after a non-option argument (, but options are not positional (-maxdepth affects tests specified before it as well as those specified after it). Please specify options before other arguments.
find: warning: you have specified the -maxdepth option after a non-option argument (, but options are not positional (-maxdepth affects tests specified before it as well as those specified after it). Please specify options before other arguments. but it starts and works. Now I check the speed and it is...
The idea is to separate the download and the upload, namely to send the upload on Net1 and the download on Net2, completely transparent to the client. My first ideas were using simple routing rules....having the default gateway for Gateway A over Net1 and having the route to the client in Gateway B over Net2. However, if I do that, the packets arriving in Gateway B from the client, aren't forwarded anymore. The same thing happens if I don't have any route to the client in Gateway B. In order to forward the packets, does it really matter if the router knows how to route to the source and does it really mater if the packet arrives on the same interface as the routing rules point to?
I am looking for a way to monitor my upload and download for my whole network not just my computer. I am using a laptop that is connected wirelessly to my router, i am able to monitor the upload and download for my laptop but i would like to view the statistics for for the whole network without being connected to the router.
I have installed libapache2-mod-bw and it works great to throttle download speeds to the clients (i.e. - the bandwidth out of the server can be controlled just peachy).However, I need to limit the bandwidth *into* the server from specific networks because my WAN links are tiny and do not have QoS or shaping of any sort (I know, I know - contracts in place - will be fixed in November - not my design).I know that there are ways to throttle this at the interface level (e.g. - wondershaper) but I'd like to allow full bandwidth to the clients that are connected locally. The server in question is for web file transfers (under apache2 on 443) and expected file sizes are up to 2GB so a per-network limit would prove helpful.
I have a 18Mg download speed internet connection and surfing the web is supper fast, streaming video is decent, etc. when I go to download a file 100 mg or so really anything my download speed will clime to about 1.3mg and then start dropping and level off at about 32 kb or lower. if I pause and restart the download it will jump back up again for a while and then come back down. if i constantly pause and restart the file will download in roughly the same amount of time as if the connection was working properly.
I am having problems with download speeds in Ubuntu 9.10. Downloads start at a healthy speed and then drop to almost zero. This affects apt-get install, Pan newsreader etc. With apt-get install if I terminate the download (with [Ctl][C]) and restart it I get another burst at high speed then again back to almost nothing. It makes updates a nightmare. With Pan newsreader I get high speed for most files but when downloading some of the larger files the speed drops right back to almost nothing after a while. I am on wired ethernet (no wireless). Typically I will get about 1.1MB before the speed drops - although I think it may be a function of time rather than data. I am talking to my ISP via a Netgear FWAG114 router and a NetComm NB5 ADSL modem operating in bridge mode. Although a number of users appear to have experienced very similar symptoms here I haven't found an answer that works.
I have a linux debian on a network connected to a router through a ethernet cord. My linux is hogging the network speed and the users of the other computers on the network aren't very happy. Is there a way to limit the download speed on only my computer?
I'd like to use tc and iptables to restrict the download speed. I understand this is know as policing. Are there some resources I could use to learn how to do this? I want to restrict on a per ip basis.
I have installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my Dell Latitude D830 laptop using the Wubi installer. Everything seems to be working fine except for my wireless connection. When I plug in my wired connection and test on speedtest.net I get download speeds of 20MB/second. However, when I switch to my wireless connection, I barely break 1MB/second. I have an Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG wireless adapter. I have scoured this forum, Google, everywhere I can think of to find a solution and none seem to work for me. I love Ubuntu but this might be a deal breaker...
I need a program that will limit download speed per connection. So that each download is limited to 100kbit/s for e,g. I tried trickled, it only limits whole application (and doesn't work with firefox). Also tried pyshaper, doesn't work. Is there such software?
I am connecting from this Ubuntu 9.10 computer to a WRT54G running dd-wrt, over WPA2 AES. Normally, everything works fine and I get very satisfactory download speeds; usually 1.5+ Mbps. Sometimes though, usually after restarting networking a lot, i.e. /etc/init.d/networking restart, the download speed seems to be limited to around 64-70 kbps. It also happened recently when I disconnected from a vpn with vpnc. It's really strange because it has nothing to do with changing any settings.
The only things I can think of are POSSIBLY wpa_supplicant causing problems because that's the only thing besides networking that's restarted. It could be related to my router config but I can't imagine what because it runs so fast normally. Rebooting the router doesn't fix it. Restarting the network, manually killing wpa_supplicant, rebooting the router. None of these seem to fix it. The only way I've found is to just reboot. Obviously, something breaks at some point that isn't affected again by anything but a reboot.
I have vonage phone service and two computers - currently using the vonage device which is essentially acts as a router with 2 phone ports. The trouble is, the vonage device splits the download speed among the two computers and the phone even when the second computer and the phone are plugged in but not actually being used. Is there such a thing as a router with phone ports that does Not do this?
So i am very new to linux based OS. Just started getting used to the terminal. but my problem is i am trying to install a game on steam and it is downloading very slow. i am used to getting close to 700 kb/s on windows 7 but on ubuntu 11.04 i am only getting 170-180 max. now i have searched all over and tried to fix it on my own but i just cant figure it out and am getting very frustrated. so if anybody has an idea as to how to fix this it would be greatly appreciated. (have looked through the forum by the way but as i said im new to linux and im not actually sure if im looking at the right things) but im using a wired connection. it says im connected to something called auto etho. and there is something called a loopback connection or something like that.
How do I do a download speed test when comparing Hosting Providers?I'm on a Macbook Pro - wondering if there's an ap for this?Also, I have accounts at each provider with a 100mb file, but I'm guessing I'm closer to one than the other? How would I make it fair?
I have been trying out Ubuntu One for the past couple of days but find it to be incredibly slow. At first i had put a folder will a large amount of images in the ubuntu one folder. The total size of it was 35Mb, after over 26 hours only 11,5Mb of that had been uploaded.
After looking around some on these forums i saw several comments about it being slow when it is a large amount of files, no matter if the filesize is small or large. I decided to try it out with a larger single file. I erased everything that was in the previous share and then put my testfile of 350Mb in the Ubuntu One folder.
After two hours of waiting i could still not see it on the U1 website so i decided to see how long it would take with dropbox and put a copy of that file in my dropbox folder as well. The file was uploaded correctly to dropbox in just a couple of minutes but it has still not been uploaded to the U1 website even though it has been 4-5 hours since i first put it in my U1 folder.
I have a pretty decent DSL connection that usually gave me about 105KB/second download speed over wifi. The "official" download speed was 1.5 megabits so I should have been getting a bit more, but that's not my question.
I recently switched to Mint from Ubuntu. Now my download speed is significantly slower, to the tune of 45 KB/second. Since the connection runs at normal speed when I connect via an ethernet cable, my guess is that mint doesn't give enough power to the wifi card. Is there any way I can fix that?
I was wondering if anyone knows of an upload manager, either native or wine, that allows the control of upload speed? I have one of those broadband plans that severely restricts upstream bandwidth, and while I'm uploading there is no room left for upstream communication, so I can't do anything else online but upload (boring). If I can limit my upstream speed to, say, 20KBps, it essentially frees all my downstream bandwidth and I can actually use my computer.
Currently, I've only tried plowshare for uploading, and though it seems to work well, it doesn't allow shaping...
I use vsftpd. I would like to know if there is a way to limit the upload speed. Only the upload speed so the "anon_max_rate" and "local_max_rate" don't do the job. Someone told me about the trickle but I expected a more recent application.
i am trying to figure out what my real internet connection speed is. when testing in speedtest, speakeasy and similar sites i get from 5 to 7,5 mbps in downloading (my line is 8 mbps). but when downloading something from the net the max speed i get is 900 kbps
A few months back I performed a routine aptitude upgrade on a Squeeze installation on a DELL Vostro desktop. My eth0 upload speed is now very bad although download speed is good. I suspect that it could be related to my other problem [URL] which was caused by the OS enabling noveau driver instead of the installed NVIDIA proprietary drivers.
