PSSpeedTest

A module for testing network bandwidth over the internet as well as private networks.

Author: Matthew Bobke

Build status

Description

Whenever I've needed to run a network bandwidth test, I've defaulted to services such as Speedtest by Ookla and fast.com. While effective, I spend a lot of time in the shell and I don't want to have to open an internet browser just to see if my network speeds are slow. iPerf3 is a simple command-line utility for testing network bandwidth and has been combined with PowerShell to form PSSpeedTest. Behind the scenes, the executable is retrieved using the ChocolateyGet PackageProvider.

Installation

Install-Module -Name PSSpeedTest -Repository PSGallery

NOTE: Installing this module will not automatically install ChocolateyGet or iPerf3. Running Invoke-SpeedTest or Install-SpeedTestServer will prompt for the installation of these two items if they are not installed and the global $ConfirmationPreference is not 'None'.

Usage (Public Functions)

Get-Help FunctionName -Full for detailed help.

Get-SpeedTestConfig

Returns a list of your configured default speed test servers/ports for Invoke-SpeedTest.

Set-SpeedTestConfig

Used to set the default speed test servers/ports for Invoke-SpeedTest when using the -Internet or -Local switch arguments.

Invoke-SpeedTest

Runs a speed test against a server that is running iPerf3. The -Internet or -Local switches will use stored defaults, or a server can be specified with -Server and -Port. -Port can be left out to use the default iPerf3 port 5201.

Install-SpeedTestServer

Sets up iPerf3 as a server process on the local computer. This performs the following:

  • Installs the ChocolateyGet PackageProvider if not already present.
  • Installs the iPerf3 package if not already present.
  • Sets the inbound/outbound firewall rules for the given port (5201 if the -Port parameter is not used.)
  • Creates a Scheduled Task to run iperf3.exe with the necessary parameters for server usage on computer startup.

Remove-SpeedTestServer

Removes all items configured by Install-SpeedTestServer with the exception of the ChocolateyGet PackageProvider.
