Network speed (bandwidth) check between two agents.

  • It would be very useful to perform a speed test between two agents. Even if this can only be done with two agents that can see each other directly on a routed network that would be fine for now! Thank you!

  • I second this one. There's a lot of ways to measure what kind of bandwidth is being used, but being able to see if there's a LAN bottleneck, or a WAN bottleneck somewhere would be great.

  • One word iperf.

    http://sourceforge.net/projects/iperf

    All you need is one exe (iperf.exe) and two scripts and you can test the bandwidth between two devices all day long as long as they can communicate on the port you specify.

    Here is a sample output:

    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Server listening on TCP port 5051

  • I'd like to see Kaseya expand it's set of included (public) scripts by adding useful tools like this. I am relatively new to Kaseya (Mar 08) and could be wrong on this - but has Kaseya added to the public scripts we all see on our KServers in the last year or two? My gut feeling is no...

    I would think continual expansion and fine tuning of public scripts would be a goal of Kaseya...

    Nice, I like it. Having this coupled with the agent's tunnel mechanism (so holes don't have to be poked in the firewall) would be fantastic.

  • Marty,

    If you run the iPerf -s on PC1 and the iPerf -c on the PC2, how can you cause PC1 to Quit the program? Can you pipe the PC2 results to a file?

    Thanks!

  • You can kill the process via another script. And yes you can pipe the results to a txt file.

    God Bless,
