Hello Adrian,

Thanks for this probe.  I'm trying to enable it form my smokeping installation but I really don't know where can I get de speedtest.pm file you mention on installation instructions.  
Can you help me with this?

Hello everyone,

I'd like to share with you a new probe I've been working on - integrating speedtest-cli project to work with smokeping. The idea was that we needed to run some tests to get the customer's "experience" when using speedtest.net with different test servers. We developed this probe, and measure the upload/download rate the client's connection supports.

Plugin description and examples are here:


There is a bit of a deviation from standard plugins - meaning it ignores the pings variable and does only one test. This was done in order to prevent the IP getting banned for too agressive behavior by the speedtest.net servers. It can be reactivated - I'm open to ideas.

Here's a sample graph from a slave probe (1 hour polling):


@tobi: if you feel this plugin could be useful and should be included in the main release, let me know and I'll see how I can merge it...

Feedback welcome,
