Install using prebuilt binaries
- Download the appropriate binary file from the releases page.
- Unzip the archive.
- Make changes to the configuration.
- Run the binary.
- Optional: Setup a systemd service file.
Use Ansible for automatic installation
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
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
Clone this repository:
$ git clone github.com/librespeed/speedtest-go
# Change current working directory to the repository $ cd speedtest-go # Compile $ go build -ldflags "-w -s" -trimpath -o speedtest main.go
settings.tomlfile along with the compiled

If you have telemetry enabled,
For PostgreSQL/MySQL, create database and import the corresponding
# 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
assetsfolder under the same directory as your compiled binary.
- You can have multiple HTML pages under
assetsdirectory. They can be access directly under the server root (e.g.
- It's possible to have a default page mapped to
/, simply put a file named

# 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.

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.
