Bandwidth Testing


A server-side program for measuring end-to-end bandwidth between a client and our bandwidth-measuring server has been installed inside the CS network. When used from a client in the CS network (e.g., desktop, LAWN wireless, or any CS server) the bandwidth reported is dependent only on services operated by LCSR. When used from a client outside of the CS network (e.g., a home machine, a desktop in another department, eden, rci, or another university) the bandwidth reported is dependent on the network services supporting the full end-to-end connection path including Rutgers RUNet and possibly some generic ISP services.

If you are experiencing poor response time, please connect to http://speed.rutgers.edu and measure the bandwidth to your client. Report the problem to help@cs.rutgers.edu being sure to include the following

  • date and time of the test
  • the client (e.g., name or IP) from which the test was run
  • the upload and download speeds reported in Mbps
  • the type of connection (i.e., wired or wireless)
