SourceForge Speed Test

The sourceForge speed test would be well suited in most scenarios. From simply measuring your speed when connecting to new networks to trying to diagnose network issues at your house, workplace or any other environment where you may have spotty internet connection. I'd say is not well suited to get perfectly accurate results if needed for any type of network monitoring.

Pros

SourceForge Speed Test

  • Provide the down/up speed
  • Measure the ping speed
  • Determining the internet loss%

  • Alerting on outages. ThousandEyes provides a few different options to receive alerts: you can have alerts emailed to a subset of (or all) users, there is a basic Slack integration, and if more flexibility is required (or your preferred method of being alerted isn't built-in) webhooks can be used to hit another API.
  • Speeding up mean time to resolution (or mean time to innocence if you're a more siloed and blame-happy organization). Failure alerts can be configured to include the cause of the failure instead of just "resource x is down." For example, the alerts can come out and say that a website was down due to an HTTP 500, which will help prevent staff from spinning their wheels trying to diagnose the network from the client to the web server.
  • Post mortems and root cause analyses. After an outage has been resolved, it is possible to go back for up to 30 days without losing any level of detail for the test in question, and to view information like the DNS response received, the network path taken by the traffic, and any added latency incurred by an individual link. It can also be used to view Internet routing changes surrounding the incident.
  • Support. Every ticket or chat I have opened has been met by a friendly and helpful staff member that has been able to provide helpful insight into what is causing a particular issue, and what steps they will take on their side to resolve an issue or provide suggestions of steps to take on our side if necessary.

You have online support from the tool itself 24/7 and they are very responsive. We also have a specific account manager and specific engineer assigned to help us with very specific questions for our environment. The level of response to our requirements is always super high. We have requested specific features to be added and these have been developed and introduced very quick tot he product (within weeks). Their DevOps and agile approach seems to pay off.

Alternatives Considered

SourceForge Speed Test

The main reason why we selected the SourceForge speed test at my job was due the company's heavy and aggressive website whitelisting. The sourceForge speed test was one of the few tests we tried that was able to work fine within our restricted network. Plus it was easy to ready, even to my boss.

ThousandEyes is able to monitor not only of network downtimes, but also to monitor bandwidth usage, paths, geo-locations and health of applications and platforms. This gives visibility of performance and metrics and flows, besides the alerting for troubleshooting.
