Site Monitoring:

I thought I would look into the trends of content load times as net neutrality is looking more and more like yesterday's news.

The why.

  • With net neutrality appearing to be repealed, I wanted to take a look at how my ISP Comcast is handling traffic to a number of sites.

  • I'm only intending to monitor the initial transfer of data necessary to load the site; however, I'm sure any potential throttling occurring in the future would be more sophisticated than slowing down anything with the youtube.com domain.

The How.

  • Using the requests and gspread packages I'm inefficiently looping through my site list and using the request.elapsed.total_seconds() to provide the time it took to load the page.

  • I'm not backing into effective bandwidth, only time necessary to download the landing page content.

  • Now it's intended to be run on a raspberry pi so local storage isn't an option I'm capable of exploring.

Future to do:

  1. Error handling & recording of said Error
  2. New data storage option as I'm sure there will be a time where I outgrow the google sheets 400K cell max.

Here are the sites currently recorded

  1. Site: A Combination of Provider and category

  2. Type: Indcates the "type" of site. This list originated with only video streaming sites so this field indicated whether it was from a Provider (ISP) or a Dedicated streaming site like Youtube. Since adding controls and Social Media it lost some congruency.

  3. Category: Groups the sites into some helpful categories for analysis like Control, social media, speed test etc.

  4. Provider: The company providing the site/service.

  5. URL: Web address the site/service is located at.
