Speed Test

Administration tool ::: tool_speedtest
Maintained by Catalyst IT, Brendan Heywood
This is a network speed tester for embedding directly inside your moodle.
Latest release:
373 sites
15 fans
Current versions available: 1

The key difference is it is hosted directly inside your Moodle instance. Speed tests will always be specific to the particular combination of the end users computer, network, and all of the hops in the middle up to and including the actual moodle. No 3rd party test will ever give you a true indication of exactly how fast a user can access this specific moodle site.

In fact using a test tool such as Google's which will likely be hosted on CDN edge servers very close to your user will almost always give a false and overly optimistic estimate of the true network speed to your moodle instance.

    James gtmatrix looks like a speed auditing tool, which tells you how to speed your page up. This tool simply tests raw network speed. They should be completely independant tools.

    Tested the latest in GitHub, release 2019121000, with 4.1.3. Works flawlessly. Very useful!
