We have several remote sites that connect back to our MPLS network over VPN tunnels. All the remote sites have DSL connections.
I need to gauge the speed of the DSL connection to determine whether the site should be upgraded to a T1 from a true service provider (i.e. Verizon, ATT, Global Crossing etc).
I know there are several bandwith test sites out there but they all need to be run from a PC sitting on the local network. The problem is, ALL Internet traffic is routed out of a proxy server sitting at a different location. It wouldn't be a true test from the site.
Is there a way to perform a bandwidth test from the router's CLI?
