Latest commit

* Use single server example as default frontend

This just works out of the box

* Refactor Dockerfile

- Remove the asset dir since it's embedded in the executable anyway
- Use the code in the current directory to build instead of downloading.
  Makes local testing very easy.
- Cache Go dependencies
- Run without root privileges. Note that using a BoltDB database
  requires mounting a volume with the correct permissions. The default
  database has thus been changed to memory so that starting the image
  just works.

* Automatically publish images

Installation

Install using prebuilt binaries

  1. Download the appropriate binary file from the releases page.
  2. Unzip the archive.
  3. Make changes to the configuration.
  4. Run the binary.
  5. Optional: Setup a systemd service file.

Use Ansible for automatic installation

You can use an Ansible role for installing speedtest-go easily. You can find the role on the Ansible galaxy. There is a separate repository for documentation about the Ansible role.

Compile from source

You need Go 1.16+ to compile the binary. If you have an older version of Go and don't want to install the tarball manually, you can install newer version of Go into your GOPATH:

  1. Install Go 1.17

    $ go get golang.org/dl/go1.17.1
    # Assuming your GOPATH is default (~/go), Go 1.17.1 will be installed in ~/go/bin
    $ ~/go/bin/go1.17.1 version
    go version go1.17.1 linux/amd64
    
  2. Clone this repository:

    $ git clone github.com/librespeed/speedtest-go
    
  3. Build

    # Change current working directory to the repository
    $ cd speedtest-go
    # Compile
    $ go build -ldflags "-w -s" -trimpath -o speedtest main.go
    
  4. Copy the assets directory, settings.toml file along with the compiled speedtest binary into a single directory

  5. If you have telemetry enabled,

    • For PostgreSQL/MySQL, create database and import the corresponding .sql file under database/{postgresql,mysql}

      # assume you have already created a database named `speedtest` under current user
      $ psql speedtest < database/postgresql/telemetry_postgresql.sql
      
    • For embedded BoltDB, make sure to define the database_file path in settings.toml:

      database_file="speedtest.db"
      
  6. Put assets folder under the same directory as your compiled binary.

    • Make sure the font files and JavaScripts are in the assets directory
    • You can have multiple HTML pages under assets directory. They can be access directly under the server root (e.g. /example-singleServer-full.html)
    • It's possible to have a default page mapped to /, simply put a file named index.html under assets
  7. Change settings.toml according to your environment:

    # bind address, use empty string to bind to all interfaces
    bind_address="127.0.0.1"
    # backend listen port, default is 8989
    listen_port=8989
    # proxy protocol port, use 0 to disable
    proxyprotocol_port=0
    # Server location, use zeroes to fetch from API automatically
    server_lat=0
    server_lng=0
    # ipinfo.io API key, if applicable
    ipinfo_api_key=""
    
    # assets directory path, defaults to `assets` in the same directory
    # if the path cannot be found, embedded default assets will be used
    assets_path="./assets"
    
    # password for logging into statistics page, change this to enable stats page
    statistics_password="PASSWORD"
    # redact IP addresses
    redact_ip_addresses=false
    
    # database type for statistics data, currently supports: none, memory, bolt, mysql, postgresql
    # if none is specified, no telemetry/stats will be recorded, and no result PNG will be generated
    database_type="postgresql"
    database_hostname="localhost"
    database_name="speedtest"
    database_username="postgres"
    database_password=""
    
    # if you use `bolt` as database, set database_file to database file location
    database_file="speedtest.db"
    
    # TLS and HTTP/2 settings. TLS is required for HTTP/2
    enable_tls=false
    enable_http2=false
    
    # if you use HTTP/2 or TLS, you need to prepare certificates and private keys
    # tls_cert_file="cert.pem"
    # tls_key_file="privkey.pem"

Differences between Go and PHP implementation and caveats

  • Since there is no CGo-free SQLite implementation available, I've opted to use BoltDB instead, as an embedded database alternative to SQLite
  • Test IDs are generated ULID, there is no option to change them to plain ID
  • You can use the same HTML template from the PHP implementation
  • Server location can be defined in settings
  • There might be a slight delay on program start if your Internet connection is slow. That's because the program will attempt to fetch your current network's ISP info for distance calculation between your network and the speed test client's. This action will only be taken once, and cached for later use.
