How to know about upload and download speed of server?

We have heard so much about the server role on our website. There is nothing possible without a server in this internet trend. It’s time to know more about server performance as many would doubt fixing the speed test. How to determine the speed of the server? Generally, we server to download and upload files right! So, is there any way to calculate the speed of download and uploads on the server? Yes, If there is a will then there is a way!!!

You can run a speed test to find the download and upload speed on the server. We recommend one topmost well-suitable application called “speed test mini”. This will give a good handy method to find the server performance. Developers as well as users would know about the speedtest.net website. All the users will prefer speedtest.net when they have an idea to test the website speed as well as for other applications. For doing speed test basically, it’s more enough to use speed test mini which is an added version for speedtest.net.

You no need to worry about the installation because; it has a basic implementation to get downloaded locally. Here, we use the Centos server for finding the server performance.

Let’s start step one by one:

Step 1:
Check the packages are up-to-date or not. It is a very basic thing to cross-check before starting the installation. If you don’t have a current update then please start it without hesitation.

Code:
# yum update –y
The above statement is recommended for checking the current updates in packages.

Step 2: Speed test mini can suit only preferable web servers. It is out of task right! We are using PHP coded Apache webserver so, execute the below-mentioned statement.

Code:
# yum install httpd –y
Step 3: Give a symbolic order to start the service htttpd

Code:
# service httpd start
Step 4: In this step, kindly start the installation process for PHP and then do a check on modules too. So, don’t leave the task of implementing PHP modules.

Code:
# yum install php php-mysql php-gd php-mcrypt –y
Users with an environment like LEMP or LAMP can neglect step 4.

Step 5: Go to the website speedtest.net and then start downloading the application mini server. Along with this, it is necessary to download an application, and also, you must create an account in the application via the website.

Code:
# wget http://c.speedtest.net/mini/mini.zip
Step 6: Here, you can see the zip file so as per your prediction do extract for the zip file. You must copy this zip extraction into the root of the Apache document.

Code:
# unzip mini.zip -d
# mv mini /var/www/html
Step 7: If you have any doubt in searching the Apache document then execute the below statement.

Code:
# grep -i “^documentroot” /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
Step 8: In your directory of speed test mini, you can see more index files. Change the name to “index-php.html”.

Code:
# cd /var/www/mini/
# mv index-php.html index.html
Step 9: Go to a web browser and then type as http://yourserverIPaddress/mini

Tap on the option begins test so that, the speed performance of download and upload will start immediately.

We are in a conclusion! It's just a 9 step article filled with more details. I hope, this will help you whenever server performance goes down. There may be many reasons for a down in server performance but do a cross-check on server speed too! We are running along with the calculative world so, it must travel with competitive intentions. Do a server check whenever you have time to increase the website performance too!!!
