What You Should Know About Network Speed Tests
Internet performance issues are the most frustrating and time consuming problems that network engineers have to troubleshoot. When the network is causing applications slowness, there are three key metrics that should be analyzed: throughput, latency, and packet loss.In this webinar, we’ll review the fundamentals of network troubleshooting and performance monitoring. We’ll review tools that can help identify throughput, latency, and packet loss bottlenecks, such as:
- Iperf, the open source throughput testing tool
- Speedtest by Ookla
- The Network Diagnostic Tool (NDT) by M-Lab
- NetFlix’s fast.com
This webinar will be most relevant to IT practitioners who are involved in day-to-day network operations and user support.
