There are multiple ways to check the upload and download speed tests of a VPS.

One way using the python tool is set out here.

The other way is given in a LET post.

It requires you to run this command:


wget dl.getipaddr.net/speedtest.sh 2>/dev/null -O- | bash

Here are the results of my RamNode VPS:


root@vps:~# wget dl.getipaddr.net/speedtest.sh 2>/dev/null -O- | bash
Testing US locations
Speedtest from Houston, TX, USA on a shared 1 Gbps port
Download Speed: 464 KB/s
Upload Speed: 1.3 MB/s
Speedtest from Los Angeles, CA, USA [ generously donated by http://maximumvps.net ] on a shared 1 Gbps port
Download Speed: 2.59 MB/s
Upload Speed: 1.6 MB/s
Speedtest from Dallas, TX, USA on a shared 4x1 Gbps port

root@vps:~#

(interrupted as it appeared to hang)

The results don’t look very convincing. Using the other method with the python tool, the speedtest is like this:


root@vps:~# python speedtest-cli
