bandwidth verification

Hi

how can I know or verify the bandwidth that router receives in serial interfaces

and download bandwidth in an ATM ADSL pots services

Re: bandwidth verification

Hi,

You can use the 'show interface' to command to see what input/output rate you are currently getting on the link.

In addition, you can use the 'sh dsl int atm' command to see what speed an ADSL line has trained up at.

Pls do remember to rate posts.

Hi

I think it is helpful to use mrtg software.

you can free download mrtg from this site

The input/output rate in show interface only shows the input/ouput rate in 5 sec.

I need verify the bandwidth given by the carrier

Re: bandwidth verification

Hi,

What you need to do is to use a piece of testing software that will try to max out the line to see what is possible on it. One such software which I use frequently is Iperf. Here's a link to it:

Re: bandwidth verification

Hi

U can test u r Isp bandwith speed.Take a example for 64k link.It will be in bit rate in your serial inteface ( 64000 ).You need to divide by 8 ( to convert bit to byte ) . So you will get 8k as a downloading speed in 64k link.

Thanks

Re: bandwidth verification

But what do these prepackaged internet bandwidth speed tests actually show ?

They only show one computer's speed, to a specific destination, at a specific time, which could be influenced by more things than the line capacity.

Are they overrated, and misinterpreted ?

I have talked to several people who think because they pay for 1.5Mbps service, that they should get 1.5Mbps speed on the "bandwidth speed tests"

Is this accurate ?

Who knows anything about these tests ?
