Mencoba Speedtest di Linux

Kalau pergi ke suatu tempat, saya suka iseng mengecek seberapa cepat koneksi internet di tempat itu. Selama ini saya pakai Speedtest via web. Untungnya, Speedtest juga bisa dijalankan lewat terminal di Linux. Begini caranya.

speedtest-cli tests your bandwidth througput using speedtest.net. Speedtest.net is a web service for testing your broadband connection by downloading a file from a nearby speedtest.net server on the web. This tool allows you to access the service from the command line.

Instalasi

Buka terminal lalu ketik:

$ sudo apt-get install python-pip
$ sudo pip install speedtest-cli

Penggunaan

Format:

$ speedtest-cli
$ speedtest-cli [OPTION]

Perintah speedtest-cli bisa dijalankan tanpa atau dengan opsi tertentu. Kalau dijalankan tanpa opsi, program ini otomatis akan memilih server terdekat secara acak.

Contoh:

$ speedtest-cli 
Retrieving speedtest.net configuration...
Testing from XXXXXXXXXX (xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx)...
Retrieving speedtest.net server list...
Selecting best server based on ping...
Hosted by ZZZZZZZZZZ [8.31 km]: 71.937 ms
Testing download speed................................................................................
Download: 2.50 Mbit/s
Testing upload speed....................................................................................................
Upload: 0.52 Mbit/s

Opsi --share

Untuk menampilkan link hasil pengetesan, tambahkan opsi --share. Hasilnya bisa dilihat di bagian Share results.

Contoh:

$ speedtest-cli --share
Retrieving speedtest.net configuration...
Testing from XXXXXXXXXX (xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx)...
Retrieving speedtest.net server list...
Selecting best server based on ping...
Hosted by YYYYYYYYYY [72.09 km]: 44.654 ms
Testing download speed................................................................................
Download: 3.29 Mbit/s
Testing upload speed....................................................................................................
Upload: 0.67 Mbit/s
Share results: http://www.speedtest.net/result/1234567890.png
speedtest-cli shared result
speedtest-cli shared result

Link hasil pengetesan berupa file gambar .png yang bisa dicopy-paste dan dilihat lewat web browser, atau didownload dengan perintah wget.

$ wget http://www.speedtest.net/result/1234567890.png

Opsi --server

Tambahkan opsi --server CODE untuk menentukan server tertentu yang akan dijadikan target pengetesan. Ganti CODE dengan nomor kode server yang sebenarnya.

Contoh:

$ speedtest-cli --server xxxxx --share
Retrieving speedtest.net configuration...
Testing from XXXXXXXXXX (xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx)...
Retrieving speedtest.net server list...
Selecting best server based on ping...
Hosted by YYYYYYYYYY [2184.11 km]: 623.107 ms

Download: 2.77 Mbit/s
Testing upload speed....................................................................................................
Upload: 0.61 Mbit/s
Share results: http://www.speedtest.net/result/1234567890.png

Untuk melihat daftar server yang tersedia berikut kodenya, gunakan opsi --list

$ speedtest-cli --list

Opsi lainnya

Untuk mengetahui opsi lain yang tersedia serta cara penggunaannya, ketik:

Selamat mencoba, semoga bermanfaat.
