How to use speedtest on a Linux server to check, store and report internet speeds graphically
The problem using these web based speed tests is that it does not allow you to schedule the speed test at regular intervals, e.g. as a cronjob and you can't use them on headless servers. One application that can solve this problem is “speedtest-cli”. This application allows you to check your internet speed using the command line.
Speedtest-cli is a script written in the Python programming language which measures the internet speed bidirectionally. This application allows you to check your internet speed upon distance in km, it can test against specific servers and it also provides a URL so that you can share your result on the internet.
