    Network Diagnostic

    Hi guys, can you all teach me how to do some network diagnostic?

    I just received my server today, and the speed's horrible, way slower than the host website's speed test.
    (http://speed2.mypackets.com/download...16040862352500)

    1) Added Speedtest.net's Mini to my site.
    http://216.240.190.95/speedtest/index.html (Help me post some results, thanks!)
    2) Added and downloaded a compress file.
    3) Ran speedtest.net using Remote Desktop (Lol, is that accurate?)

    And they all give me about 15kb/s.

    Any ideas guy? Thanks

    I would not rely on external speed tests as you can never really know what is going on between your POP and the other side's POP.

    I would recommend that you get a server nearby (same DC?) and run "iperf" between both servers. This will test the speed performance. That's where I would start... next would be to check the roundtrips (traceroute + ping).

    Contact your host, there is probably a problem somewhere on their end, and if there isn't, there's some misconfiguration on your server.

    The server isn't responding for me, but when it was for the first few moments. I was getting a Fatal error for the speed test.

    yeah, sorry about that. took down the server... got 50% refund

    waiting for softlayer now... service seems so much faster and better. 4 hours delivery compared to this 3 days delivery

    although they asked too many security questions for my liking
