How to speed test over a 72 hour period?



  • Hi Everyone,

    Running pfSense 1.2.3-RELEASE here. I have a WAN interface with PPPoE attached to ISP. I want to speed test for 72 hours and see how fast and solid the connection is over 72 hours. I want every second speed test (or every minute or every few minutes if seconds not possible).

    Is there a script? add-on? or some other method that I can do this? Please enlighten me.

    **Not possible to change to pfSense 2.0 yet. Will be able to do that over next couple weeks though. So, looking for immediate tool that runs on 1.2.3 right now.

    Thanks,



  • If you have access to a machine with a matched or faster connection than yours outside of your lan, you could try iperf.
