Simple and Easy way! Install Docker and run the following command!


docker run --restart=unless-stopped --name openspeedtest -d -p 3000:3000 -p 3001:3001 openspeedtest/latest

Now Visit :- http://localhost/hosted.html or http://YOUR-IP/hosted.html


If you don't want to use Docker Image, Follow the steps.

Step 1) Create a domain/subdomain for your server.

Step 2) Create index.html (or a page from the same domain) file and paste our widget code.

Step 3) Upload both files (File 1 & File 2) to your server and change the permissions to 755.

Step 4) You need to make a few changes on your server. Enable Cross-origin resource sharing with https://openspeedtest.com

Your server should accept 'GET, POST, OPTIONS' from "https://openspeedtest.com" & POST Content-Type:application/octet-stream, Content Length is dynamic. so server should accept POST content length of 35Mb or more. And turn off Gzip!

Suppose you are using this app on speedtest.example.com. The files should be accessible from speedtest.example.com/downloading & speedtest.example.com/upload. This application will look at the hostname only. So, e.g., hostname/downloading will be the correct destination for test files. Mostly it will be the root web dir of your website.

Download Nginx configuration. If you are not using Nginx, you need to make a similar configuration for your server.

Are you experiencing slow internet? Endless buffering? Probably due to congested wifi channel. You may need to change your WiFi router location or adjust your router settings.

An application for launching HTML5 Network Speed Test Server. You can Conduct download/upload speed tests from any device within your network with a web browser that is IE10 or new.

Introducing Network Speed Test Server for Android, iOS, Windows, Mac & Linux!. For Headless/large-scale deployments, Docker image and Source Code are available.


How to use OpenSpeedTest Network Speed Test Server?
You need two device in between your WiFi router. Run OpenSpeedTest Server App on one device and connect directly to your router, if it's a wireless device, put it within 1.5 meters. Navigate to the URL shown from OpenSpeedTest Server App from the second device.

Why do you need to Create Your Own SpeedTest Server?
You can run OpenSpeedTest Server in your Home Lab, Office Server or Cloud Server. So that you or employees who work from home can run a speed test to your office and make sure they can run everything smoothly.

Choosing between ISP1 & ISP2.
Sometimes your ISP2 is Faster than ISP1 when you test your speed on popular speed test sites. But when you connect to your Home/Office/Cloud, that slower connection may perform better. The only way to find out is to run a speed test against your infrastructure.

Troubleshooting network issues.
It is common even when your Internet connection is working fine, but some of the devices in your network may experience trouble getting decent connectivity to the internet. The issue might be the wrong VLAN ID or Faulty Switch. If you run a Local network speed test, you can find and fix these issues easily.

Before you add a repeater.
Most repeaters will reduce your network speed by 50%, so if you put it far away, it will perform worst, and if you put it too close, you will not get enough coverage if you run a Local Network speed test. Depending on the application requirements, you can decide exactly where you need to put your repeater.

Browsing experience.
Many useful browser extensions are out there that we all know and love. But some of them are really slowing you down for few seconds per page you visit. You may see good performance when you test your network performance via File Transfer or Command-line utilities, but you may experience poor performance when browsing the internet. This is due to a bad browser configuration that including unwanted extensions installed. From my experience, only keep the one you are going to use every single day. Extension that you may use once in a while should be removed or disabled for maximum performance. If you see poor performance, try OpenSpeedTest from Private Window or Incognito Window. This tool can be used to check the browser performance and impact of Extensions on your browsing experience.

No client-side software or plugin is required. You can run a network speed test from any device with a web browser that is IE10 or new.

1) Stress Test. (Continuous Speed Test)


Stress testing is for identifying overheating issues & other problems that may arrive when the system is at full load. So you can ensure stability when used in a normal environment.

You can see the results in near-real-time, So you can test and see the impact of the configuration change in your network equipment instantly, Helpful when Fixing Wi-Fi interference , change in position or orientation, proper ventilation, etc., from your devices easily.

Overheating and thermal throttling is common issues found on all network equipment and connected devices. if you run a stress test, you can simulate a busy day and see how your device will perform.

1) Download and install OpenSpeedTest-Server

2) Open the URL shown in Server App on the device you want to run the test.

3) To enable stress pass 'Stress' or 'S' keyword as a URL parameter. Also you can feed the first letter of each parameter and its values. You can pass multiple keywords and it's not CasESensitivE.

Example :

if http://192.168.1.5:3000 is the url shown in server.

You need to add "?Stress=Low" at the end of the url or "?S=L"

Now, the URL looks like this.

http://192.168.1.5:3000?Stress=Low or http://192.168.1.5:3000?S=L

Stress=Low Or S=L will run a speed test for 5 Minutes (300 Seconds) for upload and download.

Stress=Medium Or S=M will run a speed test for 10 Minutes (600 Seconds) for upload and download.

Stress=High Or S=H will run a speed test for 15 Minutes (900 Seconds) for upload and download.

Stress=VeryHigh Or S=V will run a speed test for 30 Minutes (1800 Seconds) for upload and download.

Stress=Extreme Or S=E will run a speed test for 60 Minutes (3600 Seconds) for upload and download.

Stress=Day Or S=D will run a speed test for one Day (86400 Seconds) for upload and download.

Stress=Year Or S=Y will run a speed test for one Year (31557600 Seconds) for upload and download.

or you can specify "Stress=5000" or "S=5000", This will run a speed test for 5000 Seconds, or any other number of your choice.

2) Start a Speed Test Automatically.

If you want to start the test automatically without clicking the start button, add "run" or "r" keyword as a URL parameter.

http://192.168.1.5:3000?run or http://192.168.1.5:3000?R

If you like to start the test after specific time, give the time in seconds.

Example, If i need to run a speed test after 45 seconds

http://192.168.1.5:3000?run=45

If i need to stress for 300 seconds and start a speed test without clicking the start button.

http://192.168.1.5:3000?R&S=300 or http://192.168.1.5:3000?Run&Stress=300

3) Run a Specific Test. (Download, Upload or Ping.)

Sometimes you need to run a specific test, If you need to run upload test, you can pass "Test=Upload" or "T=U" as a URL Parameter. You can test download "Test=Download" or "T=D" or ping "Test=Ping" or "T=P" like this.

4)Set the Number of ping samples by adding "Ping" or "P" as a URL Parameter

http://192.168.1.5?Ping=500 OR http://192.168.1.5?p=500

More samples means more accurate representation. Ping=500 will send 501 requests to server to find the accurate ping value.

5) Change default limit of 6 parallel http connections to Server, by adding "XHR" or "X" as a URL Parameter

http://192.168.1.5?Xhr=1 OR http://192.168.1.5?X=1

6 is the common limit found on most browser. XHR will Accept values above 1 and maximum 32

6) Select a different server to run a speed test.

http://192.168.1.5?Host=http://192.168.55.1:90 OR http://192.168.1.5?h=http://192.168.55.1:90

Pass "Host" or "H" as a URL Parameter. Accept only valid http urls like "http://192.168.1.10:3000" or "https://yourHost.com".

7) Set a PingTimeout dynamically by passing "Out" or "o" as a URL Parameter

http://192.168.1.5?Out=7000 OR http://192.168.1.5?O=7000

If Server not responded within 5 Seconds for any requests we send ('pingSamples' times) We will show Network Error, you can change the limit here. In milliseconds, if you need to set 6 seconds. Change value to 6000.

8) Disable or change Overhead Compensation factor.

http://192.168.1.5?Clean or http://192.168.1.5?C

Overhead Compensation factor, This is browser based test, Many Unknowns. Currently 4%. That is within the margin of error. You can pass "Clean" or "C" as a URL Parameter and reset Overhead Compensation factor to Zero or set any value between 0 and 4. 1 = 1% to 4 = 4%. "clean" will not accept values above 4, so Compensation is limited to maximum 4%.

Firefox is not recommended for Stress Tests above 10 Minutes or Speeds above 2.5Gbps. Browser extensions can negatively affect Latency reports and Overall performance. Try to run a speed test in incognito mode or from a browser without extensions.

Chrome, Edge, Safari, Opera, Brave etc., can run 10Gbps+ & Run continuous speed tests for hours or even days. Incognito Mode or a Browser without extensions is recommended for more accurate results.
