68K Internet Speed Test results...
« on: July 15, 2019, 06:12:53 PM »
Always tried to find an internet speed test site that didn’t require Java Script to test my AOS 3.X machines - quite unsuccessful. I noticed a program on AmiNet the other day called AmiSpeedTest. Here’s a link…  http://aminet.net/package/comm/net/AmiSpeedTest .  It doesn’t seem to actually use a local or remote file for the test - but gives good results. It seems to be able to connect to different local internet providers randomly. But, that’s a good thing, IMO. Now, on to the test results!

First a benchmark of my internet provider…



1st test is an A1200 with an ACA1233N accelerator and a Netgear 11MB/s wireless card. AOS3.5. Results were 538KB/s Download & 350KB/s Upload.




2nd test is an A1200 with a GVP Typhoon accelerator (in my sig) with a 3COM 3CXE589ET 10MB/s ethernet card (notice X-Jack - NOT a fan!). AOS3.5. Results were 1104KB/s Download & 1190KB/s Upload.




3rd test is an A2000 with Blizz 2060 accelerator (in my sig) with a Individual X-Surf 10/100MB/s ethernet card. AOS3.9. Results were 2210KB/s Download & 1895KB/s Upload.




What do these tests mean? Well, not a whole helluva lot!  :o
But it’s great Amiga fun! Show us your speed test!  8)
Hey, maybe Doug the 10 Minute Retro Guy could create an "in-depth" video for us!?  ;)

BTW, run the CLI program, it's better as it runs in a window. The other program runs full screen.
BTW2, it would be awesome if someone had the talent to animate the program!  :D
BTW3, OS3.9's Unarc program can't unpack the LHA correctly. It's a speedtest program bug. However, using LHA to unpack works fine.

This is quite interesting. And wireless is damn slow, good to know. :)

Do you know the CPU-Load while running those tests?  Especially the XSurf rocks with 2MB/s. :o

Just for the heck of it, I googled "amiga CPU monitor".
https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&gbv=1&q=amiga+cpu+monitor&oq=&aqs=

I haven't really dug in yet but, it would seem to me that there might be a "real time" CPU monitor to run while the Internet Speed Test is running?  Probably something on AmiNet....  we'll have a look!  ;)

Okay, checked on Scout and it appears that I had downloaded years ago. Fired it up again and all I get in all the fields is [identity.library required] (I had forgotten about that) couldn't figure it out back in the day so I never used it again. I googled for the library but come up empty. Any suggestions? It looks a really useful program!  :D Actually, I'd like to get this program running to see if the Internet Speed Test stresses the CPU....  if at all.  ???

That library is included in the Scout_os3 archive on aminet. Try downloading it again. http://m68k.aminet.net/package/util/moni/Scout_os3

Back to the Scout program, yeah just had to pop identity.library in libs. All good there. A nice program. As far as CPU use goes while running the Internet Speed Test, yes, it does give the CPU a bit of a workout. Mostly, the lesser the specs of the machine, the more it uses. I assume that depends on bus bandwidth, CPU speed and other factors. The wireless A1200's CPU use jumped as high as 48% (about 12% CPU use at idle). While the A2000 only increased to about 8% (about 3% CPU use at idle). So, thanks for the tip on Scout TribbleSmasher!  :D  @paul1981, revisiting the AmiNet page for Scout made it obvious that all I had to do was add the library!  ;)

Just ran the Speed Test on my A1200 with wired Ethernet connection.  Machine has an '030 Blizzard with Math chip...my average download speed was 2259 kb/s and my average upload speed was 4529 kb/s using Comcast/Xfinity broadband in California.

Sheeeet! That's better than my Blizz 060! And I have Comcast Bizness!  :D

I've uploaded a video to YouTube which shows AmiSpeedTestCLI running, with Tinymeter showing the CPU usage. It goes up to 100% on upload.

My average download speed is 2342 Kb/s and Average upload speed it 2024 Kb/s.
