How to Check VPS Port Speed in SSH ?
How can I check the post speed using SSH
so I can know if the server is on 10mbps or 20 or 100mbps ??
Unfortunately you probably can't. Whilst in SSH you could look at the interface speed, this may not provide any indication of the actual network port speed available to your VPS.
The best way to test the speed would be to download a large file from it and look at the average download speed. Obviously then the limitation(s) would be your local connection speed, and the distance from your VPS.
Remember that 8Mbps=1MBps

Haven't monitored it using either mii-tool or ethtool, but if you are running OpenVZ or Virtouzzo, you will not see any high deviation from the HN.
You can try tweaking the performance as mentioned at http://wiki.openvz.org/Performance_tuning

If you are on a VPS then most likely you will not have any access to the physical hardware whatsoever. The only thing you will see is a virtual interface that connects back to the host OS.

Provided the test file is on a different server in the same DC it would be an accurate test of the port speed. Less factors.
