MySpeed is a java applet that enables you to quickly
and easily provide broadband speed testing to your end users. MySpeed
can use your existing web server as the only server side code
-- a huge plus in many secured environments that do not allow server applications
to be installed.
Quick Start: Extract all of the files from the downloaded myspeed.zip
trial kit and place into a folder on your web server. Then view this
readme.html file on your web server using your web browser
and start playing around with the many
MySpeed usage examples included in this kit.
MySpeed Professional: The professional version of MySpeed includes
server-side enhanced reporting
with session id / name tracking,
continuous testing capabilities, and
GUI branding. A key component of the professional
version is the addition of the MySpeedServer.war Java Servlet
server-side application for added functionality and increased test accuracy.
Deploying MySpeed: After reviewing MySpeed on your web server (see
Quick Start above), you have some decisions to make before deploying
MySpeed onto a production server:
Purchase a License: During your trial of MySpeed, you will see an
'unlicensed' banner message. Licensed versions of MySpeed do not display
- Web Server:
While MySpeed will work on almost any web server, the
Apache web server
is preferred and recommended since it provides the most accurate
upload test results
- data.bin size:
We recommend replacing the kit 1.2 MB data.bin file with
a 10 MB file that you create
This improves the HTTP download speed test results for clients on
- HTTP vs socket tests:
By default, MySpeed will use your web server as the only server side
software to perform HTTP download and upload speed tests. This works very
well up to around 100 Mbps for downloads and 10 Mbps for uploads.
However, by installing the MySpeedServer.war Java Servlet (a MySpeed
Professional feature), you gain 'socket' based download and upload speed tests,
which works well past 100 Mbps for both downloads and uploads.
- Reporting: By installing the MySpeedServer.war
Java Servlet (a MySpeed Professional feature), you gain
Add end users names, or any other text identifier you choose, into reports by
using the Session ID / Name feature.
- INI settings:
There are many optional configuration parameters within MySpeed which
can be set or changed to fully modify the MySpeed GUI (colors, text strings, etc).
Edit the Myspeed myspeed.bin INI file (a 16-bit Unicode file) using
notepad.exe (Windows) or vi (Unix) and review the comments
in the file for help.
Please note that you can override individual myspeed.bin
settings on a case by case basis by using the HTML applet param tag.
Just review the HTML source code of our
to see how this is done.
