How to Check Port Speed and RAM?


Hey guys

I was wondering how to check my servers port speed?

I know I ordered a 100Mbps connection with my dedicated server, but I'd like to see if it's actually running at that or if I got ripped and need to complain. I have whm and cpanel (just saying in case it has the option to check and I didnt see)

Same thing with RAM. I just wanted to check if I received the correct amount.

Thanks!

ifconfig or /sbin/ifconfig should tell you what speed its connected at.

For ram you need to type command: free

Not sure what operating system you have commands might be different for different operating systems.

You can simply use the commands below and no need for an external script to check ram usage and port speed.

[1] Use "mii-tool" to determine port speed.
[2] Use "free -m" to check the RAM status.
