The instructions can be found here: 

The actual plugin (which needs to go in your probes dir - e.g 
/opt/smokeping/lib/Smokeping/probes/ ) is here: 

Read the instructions and if you get stuck tell us what the problem is.

I haven't had time to work out the bugs of this plugin and push it 
upstream - sorry. Maybe I will have time one day to polish it and 
include it with the official plugins

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.
