Using 207.32.195.2
I cant seem to get more than 300-800Kbps on TCP Download?

Are others having an issue like this ?
TCP and UDP are different types of Internet communications protocols.

UDP is a "Fire and Forget" protocol. The sending device will send a packet or packets and not wait for the intended remote receiver device to acknowledge that anything was received. Kinda like shooting a machine gun - it just sends.

TCP is a "Fire and wait for from the intended remote receiver device to return an acknowledgement (ACK) that a packet was received". After the ACK is received back by the original sending device, then the next TCP packet is sent - and the wait for answer routine begins again. Kinda like shooting a single bullet from a rifle and waiting for somebody to tell you that you hit the target before you shoot again.

UDP can be great for something like a movie stream where if something gets missed , then you just continue on sending the rest of the movie. Thus there is no real guarantee that what you sent was verified that it was received.

TCP can be great for something like pulling up a web page. The web server gets acknowledgement (ACKs) back from the workstation that the web page was properly received. Thus you get fewer communication mistakes.

Let's assume the following (below) are some data packets you want to send - which protocol would you want to use ?
- Packet 1 "Hello Robert , please "
- Packet 2 "don't "
- Packet 3 "call me on the phone"
If using UDP and "Packet 2" is dropped/lost, then the entire message could be understood as something totally different"
If using TCP, the entire communications session can be much slower because there is a wait time for everything.

Now in your scenario where "I cant seem to get more than 300-800Kbps on TCP Download" , the answer could be that you are many hops away (somewhere on the other side of the world), and waiting time for a round-trip answer takes an extended period of time. With UDP, there could be multiple packets going through the Internet that the sender sent and has not been received yet - because those multiple packets are still traveling through the Internet.

There are also some other possible causes of slow TCP traffic such as QOS, priority, network saturation, firewall behavior, symmetric or asymmetric paths through the Internet and others.

I hope I partially answered your question.
((( lol - if you absolutely need faster TCP bandwidth to 207.32.195.2, then mabey you need to move to North Idaho - lol )))

Hi there, I have been trying to test my CCR1009 connected to a 2Gbit fiber connection and I have tried both servers listed in this thread. I can consistently get 2GB's down (about 2.1-2.3 actually), but never really more than 1Gb up. Is there something I am doing wrong? I had the ISP come test, and they validated 2GB in each direction using their own tests so they claim the problem is in the CCR router.

Is there a way for me to reliably test 2GB in each direction? I am doing UDP testing.

Yeah it's nice but let see when i have time to buy licence for 10G+ CHR and put that to VPS... We are ISP and Hosting Company so we have own peering what is 10G+ now. Also we are sell Mikrotik devices here Finland... Also need QOS rules because someone can use that make connection down... Also need server with 10G+ port, now mostly we have only 1G+...

This connection shared also to our customer also :)

I think on this free open servers have upload limits... Also where are u? So example here Finland cannot get 10G+ because too long line and too much peering... Thats why need also speedtest server here so can test :) - Both server is in US

Let me guess Comcast gigabit-pro? Either way where are you located and what kind of configuration do you have on the ccr? Like NAT or only layer-3? firewall rules or even regex operations?

O come on now ...

It's one thing to run a brief bandwidth test to the public btest server at 207.32.195.2
But it's another thing to run a sustained btest for hours or days non-stop.

Although I have the bandwidth, the simple queues on this btest server will drop down in throughput rates when you keep a sustained btest running. Thus if anybody else tries to btest to the same server, they will never be able to see their peak throughput (because you have the simple queue slowing down the btest server for the next person wanting to test.)

So with that, 216.218.22.xx and 94.142.173.xx , you are more than welcome to btest to 207.32.195.2 - however please make these btest tests brief so the next person can also btest at full speed.

Thank you

Yo , planetcoop

Thought I would ask ...

Are you up for a btest server to btest server test ? (my 207.32.195.2 btest server to your 50.235.23.218 btest server) ?

If you have the bandwidth and available resources ...
Sometime tomorrow morning, I would like to run a 4 hours long btest ( both directions - UDP - with up and down speeds set to 1250M ).

I would like to stress test and hold both directions slightly faster than 1-gig. This way I can verify we are on 10-gig routers and switches end to end and that my normal ISP client traffic does not take any slowdown hits during this hours long test.

I was thinking about starting sometime after 8 AM PST tomorrow Friday. But I will wait for your permission btest first.

by the way - - - If there are any other Mikrotik admins willing to run a public btest server , please post and let us know. If you do, we can offer some advice for how to limit the maximum btest bandwidth so that your networks continue running correctly during a btest session.

Re: ... Firewall, most likely. UDP packets from BTest server look like unsolicited traffic. ...

I agree

The 207.32.195.2 btest server does not have any firewall rules.
The 207.32.195.2 btest server is not behind another firewall.
The 207.32.195.2 btest server is directly connected to the Internet.

If somebody is having problems with a TCP and/or UDP btest in either or both directions, then you may want to examine your firewall rules.

no, typically you do not want the internet or random networks hitting the input chain. you would have to allow for this with a rule additional to default rules but you can also enable/disable rules based on testing or other requirements.

As Tom said in his previous post about the btest, mine is not as accessible due to ipv4 limitations i have. Mine is NAT4 behind an address on a ccr1036 and is also available on ipv6 directly routed through the ccr1036. In my own testing the NATipv4 configuration is not a limitation in testing and has a port range to support testing.

First of all, thanks guys for offering these bandwidth tests.
I'm trying to set this up as a script with the output to a file which will then be E-Mailed to me. The idea being that once a day, the router will perform the test. If I see substantial changes in performance, I can investigate. For testing this, I am using the following commands:
[admin@RB750Gr3 #2] /tool> bandwidth-test 50.235.23.208 direction=both duration=15s random-data=yes user=btest password=btest

This produces a correct output after 15 seconds:
status: done testing
duration: 16s
tx-current: 12.1Mbps
tx-10-second-average: 12.1Mbps
tx-total-average: 11.8Mbps
rx-current: 121.2Mbps
rx-10-second-average: 95.4Mbps
rx-total-average: 68.8Mbps
lost-packets: 0
random-data: yes
direction: both
tx-size: 1500
rx-size: 1500

Then I change the command to:
[admin@RB750Gr3 #2] /tool> bandwidth-test 50.235.23.208 direction=both duration=15s random-data=yes user=btest password=btest file="BW_test.txt"

This produces the file BW_test.txt as expected, but not with the expected data. All I get in the output file is:
# may/30/2017 11:28:43 by RouterOS 6.39.1
# software id = [redacted]
#
status: connecting
duration: 0s
tx-current: 0bps
tx-10-second-average: 0bps
tx-total-average: 0bps
rx-current: 0bps
rx-10-second-average: 0bps
rx-total-average: 0bps
lost-packets: 0
random-data: yes
direction: both
tx-size: 1500
rx-size: 1500

I never get any results after connecting.

Any suggestions about what I'm missing???

BTW, this is from the Los Angeles area on my newly installed Spectrum cable based connection (massive improvement over my DSL!)

Thanks

bleeding.png
On the 207.32.195.2 btest server, I have been seeing some btest sessions that appear to not quit after a few minutes.
I have seen some btest sessions that will go 24 hours non-stop.

Hay everybody - please do not run sustained btest tests. These btest servers are intended for brief btest testing.
When one person holds a continued non-stop btest, then other Mikrotik admins can get skewed results to the same btest server.

Example - on my 207.32.195.2 btest server, I have a simple-queue that will auto drop the bandwidth after a minute or so to around 500 meg in both directions.
When somebody holds an extended btest test, the simple-queue kicks in. Then when a 2nd Mikrotik admin starts a btest, then both admins are sharing a 500 meg max throughput session.
I often see 5 btest tests at the same time - this means that when one person has triggered the simple-queue (because of a lengthy btest) , then all 5 Mikrotik admins can only get a slice to the 500 meg (due to simple-queue).
When nobody in btesting, the simple-queue clears itself and the first person to execute a btest test can actually hit 2-gig and faster for a minute-or-so until the simple-queue kicks in again.

Re - the sustained btest Mikrotik tests

We know who the extended non-stop btest testers are. We just use our Winbox and go to Tools - BTest server - Sessions (there is your IP testing to our btest server)

Please play nice and fair for other btest testers and please do not hold extended non-stop btest tests.

If you have a special need, we can and are willing to set-up something special for temporary extended testing.

I will also be changing my btest rules. I will remove the 5 minute limitation and the every 2 hour rules. The past 8 hours have proved effective and my CHR has not been abused otherwise. Enjoy.

planetcoop - is this correct and should work ?
I am not experienced with ROS firewalls. For core, in-house, for business firewalls, I generally use PfSense instead or Cisco firewalls.

That should be it with several assumptions, 5 minute test window every 2 hours based on source ip. This will also include your address ranges. Also that tcp/udp 2000-2100 for the port range.

OK - some questions:
- What is needed for a allow this network at all times? Such as I want to allow all of my Class C networks at all times where they skip the firewall raw configs.
- Is there a way to see what IP address are temporarily in the 2-hour blocked window & when those IPs entered that state?

info btest server 207.32.195.2

I have some new rules in place in the configuration to block and stop "robo-btest testing". Where a remote mikrotik is scripted to perform robo btests to 207.32.195.2
Also
Please limit your btest tests to 1 minute. Anything longer will auto place you in a block for a period of time.

Note: When we see robo automated btest tests to the public btest servers - and when we see non-stop-continouis btest tests to the public btest servers, we conclude the following:
- Somebody is abusing the public btest servers
-and/or-
- Somebody may be abusing their Internet ISP by creating sustained network loads on their ISP and all router paths to the public btest servers

Again - Everybody is welcome to manually test to the btest servers, however please limit the actual btest session to 1-minute or less - and please wait a minimum of 15 minutes before starting your next btest. Please remember, there are many many many other Mikrotik admins in many countries also using these btest servers.

Thank you

Great news for the day, the DDOS was hitting "btest.planetcoop.com" has been blocked for the moment and the CHR up time is over 48 hours now. Additionally, this should allow for more beneficial test results. Please update us if you are having any issues with btest throughput.

Depending on the length of test the graph wont show it. I think the shortest interval is 5 minutes per average. You would have to run it for 5 or more minutes to start showing detail. If you would like you may run the test longer.

Can't seem to PM you, but would really like to discuss current list of blocked IPs, suspect I was a dipstick and left a btest running on a customers router by accident as a certain portion of our IPs seem to be unable to btest to btest.planetcoop.com now.

I am currently using several rule sets to block ip addresses as discussed in this thread:
viewtopic.php?f=9&t=98804

Additionally i have the 5 minute btest rule per every hour as well. I have finally created one rule for a 5 minute test every 12 hours with an ending ip of .132. If this is your ip it is not a problem and i am willing to allow it to use the 5 minute out of the hour in my main rule set. At this point i am trying to understand the traffic patterns as you have seen my previous posts about abuse from Brazil-net AS network that are un-secure.

FYI, i am also not sure on the PM part of the forum.

Ok, no that's not our IP. Would you be able to shoot me an email to ali@airbroadband.co.uk to discuss this further in private? I'm still having issues, and just looked at it further and there is some weird behaviour going on, potentially on your servers end?

My 207.32.195.2 btest server is working. (However I just rebooted it to make sure).

planetcoop and I ( TomJ North Idaho ) , both run public accessible Mikrotik CHR btest servers which are connected to the Internet using 10-gig interfaces.

We both made some changes somewhat recently which block/drop extended/lengthy/non-stop/frequently-repeating btests. We both have slightly different rules for the configuration.

My 207.32.195.2 btest test server (here in North Idaho) has the following:
- Max up/down speeds of about 3-gig btest
- I have a limit of about 2 minutes for a btest then the test auto terminates - then you will need to wait a few minutes before you can btest again.

I configured the rules on my 207.32.195.2 btest server because we were seeing extended/lengthy/non-stop btests and/or auto-repeating btests every minute of every hour of every day. This was preventing other btesters from getting good/clean btest results because the btest server bandwidth was shared between everybody testing at the same time - which made slower btest results for everybody testing at the same time.

I am pretty sure planetcoop has very similar reasons for his btest limits also.

Anyways - if you are testing to my North Idaho 207.32.195.2 btest server , try waiting 4 minutes , then run a btest for about 1 minute up , wait 4 minutes then run a btest for about 1 minute down - then optionally repeat a few times to make sure your btest results come out the same.

I have limited my btest CHR to a 5 minute window once per hour. once the server sees traffic or the session from you it will block you at the end of the five minutes and then allow the connection 60 minutes after first contact again. As Tom has described we have seen some lengthy testing. Please feel free to test as much as you want within that window to btest.planetcoop.com. If you need additional testing, please reach out as i can work with you to add you on a longer testing white list.

planetcoop - a question re the "5 minute window once per hour" on your btest server

Will this work below (without your rules blocking for an hour) ?:
1 minute btest TCP send
1 minute btest TCP receive
1 minute btest UDP send
1 minute btest UDP receive

(or any combination of different btest(s) within an hour prior to adding up to 5-minutes within the hour)

At the moment it is by ip address and the remote address starts the 5 minute timer. So for example your btest to my btest. The first packet starts the timer and you have 5 minutes to conduct any testing. After 5 minutes, the btest CHR blocks the address for the next 55 minutes. After that, the temporary blocked address is removed and valid to pursue any further tests with the same ongoing rules as above. It is harsh, but i have found that to be very effective and it dynamically weeds out abuse. I have also said i can whitelist any tester if they need additional testing as we have in the past tested beyond a 5 minute test. :)

Is it working now ?

Over the weekend, I had to turn-off the 207.32.195.2 btest server. I had a 10-gig fiber cut and my business fell back to a less-than-500-meg Microwave link. Everything was turned back on Tuesday morning.

Request - a little help please ...

I suspect my 10-Gig physical Internet connection (2-Gig burstable to 4-Gig), may not be achieving what I am paying for. It appears like I am only running on a 1-Gig Internet connection.
Thus, I suspect my 207.32.195.2 btest server may also not be performing at greater than 1-Gig btest speeds.

This is where I am asking for help.
Just now, I disabled all bandwidth limits and rules on my 207.32.195.2 btest server.
Please, will the Mikrotik admins with 1-Gig and faster Internet connections please perform a couple of btests to my 207.32.195.2 btest server and then please post their btest throughput results.

I will attempt to keep the 207.32.195.2 btest server open & un-limited for a few days - or until I begin to experience bandwidth load issues - or until I am able to confirm my upstream bandwidth problems.

Note - please limit your btest testing to a maximum of 1 to 2 minutes per test.

Tom,

First: Thank you for the Outstanding service that you are providing to the Mikrotik community!

Now to my problem.

Do you have any IP's blocked at the firewall?
When I test through my 100x100 Spectrum Cable link all is well but when I test trough my 100x100 Windstream Cloud Firewall connection (via MPLS) I cannot connect.
My public IP on the Windstream service is in the 40.138.114.0 space.

Windstream says that they are made a policy that is "wide open" for my source address but I still cannot connect through them.

I've tried TCP, UDP, packet size 500 to 1500 etc.

Any ideas anyone?

Thanks,

Ray

Thank you for your nice reply :)

My 207.32.195.2 btest server does not have any firewalls - except for the following:
There is a rule that after a couple minutes of testing, it will auto block your IP address for about an hour. Then after the hour has elapsed, the IP address will be released.

What IP address are you testing from?
If you are able to reply promptly, I can then drop all rules , then post for you to try it. Then later re-enable my btest usage rules.

Please -

Please , do not robo auto-btest

I see at least one auto/robo/automated btest every-20-minutes

I can understand why you would want something like this, but a robo automated btest to my 207.32.195.2 best server is not what I intended it for (especially one I see running every 20 minutes) . Also, if it auto btests during any other manual btest at the same time, the results can be incorrect because of the shared bandwidth while the two btest(s) were running at the same time.

I might be able to work with an automated 1-time-a-day after midnight my time robo btest , but I would want to know and set the schedule.

Currently, the intent is supposed to be for all mikrotik admins performing brief manual btests at any time of the day.

No robo automated btest clients to the 207.32.195.2 btest server !!!!
I see at least 4 robo btest servers auto testing to the 207.32.195.2 btest server.

I want to be a nice guy
I don't want to have to place your robo test IP address into a full blocked access to my network or my 207.32.195.2 btest server
If I have to block it, I will also publish the IP address of your robo btest IP address - and who you are.

This server is intended to be used by a physical person who is manually testing bandwidth. It is not for robo btest devices to auto-check the performance of your network every few minutes or hours or days. Please - manual btest performed by a human only.

If you need a full-time dedicated btest server for your robo test device to test to 24x7, then lets talk about a co-location server that you pay for instead of me.

Please - lets play nice :)

Months ago I embedded a 10 second duration upload and download test into our web provisioning platform to assist with determining bandwidth performance when doing new installations (this generates at most less than 5 or 10 minutes of collective tests spread over the course of a month, so definitely not abuse levels!), and noticed today that the planetcoop test server (50.235.23.218) isn't accepting any connections, and when I manually tried the 207.32.195.2 server, it blocked me after about 2 minutes from running the first download test, before I could conduct a upload test.

Would an update on the current status and details on the rules you are both applying be possible? Really appreciate having the tools available, but need to know the limits and availability on using it.

I would guess that planetcoop and myself are willing to consider almost anything that benefits all Mikrotik admins, providing the item being considered does not have a negative effect on the btest servers.

However, prior to considering other options, please note - at this time :
- planetcoop and myself are wanting to avoid the use of automated robo client btest servers.
- planetcoop and myself are saying that the use of manual human-at-the-controls-in-real-time client btest are permitted.

One possibly important item I discovered recently that needs some research to be verified is the following:

- Last week I wrote up my own in-house robo-client btest application which would sequence one-at-a-time through several hundred of my Mikrotik clients and have them perform robo-btest(s) to my 207.32.195.2 btest server. I was using a Linux server with a telnet/ssh expect script to Mikrotik clients using the CLI which would login into each client Mikrotik and have them perform UDP download speed tests.
- What I discovered (possibly a bug), is that after the time allocated in the btest command, and after the Linux telnet/ssh expect script /quit the connection, the 207.32.195.2 btest server would sometimes still continue the UDP btest send to the client Mikrotik (even after the client btest time allocated had expired and the remote login had logged-out). The result was a continued btest that would not-stop and would continue running indefinitely. When sequencing one-at-a-time through about 50 client Mikrotiks, I could end up with 3 to 10 btest that would continue running non-stop long after the expect script to the client had timed-out the btest, waited a minute then logged out.
- The logs on the remote client Mikrotik used to initiate the btest session did show the login and the logout - however - after the logout and the log showing the logout, the btest still continued to run.
- I suspect this may be a bug

For this reason (and my past statements in this forum) , I am asking the Mikrotik admin community to please not use robo-automated-btest sessions to the btest servers.
When a human is at the controls, this condition is easily identifiable and correctable. If this happens with a robo-automated-btest client to a btest server, the effects can possibly saturate networks and make the results of other Mikrotik admins performing a btest to the same server give skewed bandwidth results (and also have a lasting effect on my network until each problem client is rebooted or the btest server is rebooted).
I suspect I may off seen this many times with multiple long-time-btest sessings that appeared to never stop. If I remember correctly, (prior to some additional rules), I had seen some btest sessions running non-stop for several days.

Thank you

North Idaho Tom Jones

Just to be clear, my implementation is done only upon one of our admins clicking the test bandwidth button inside the web admin console they use to manage their hardware, and it's hard coded to run only a single 10 second test up, followed by a single 10 second test down, it then disables the test button once it's been ran once. They would have to exit and re-enter that configuration screen to be able to run it a 2nd time. so while it's automated in the sense that it is launched programmatically through the hardware, it is initiated and requested by an admin.

So much to think about. My brain hurts - lol

My robo-testing to my 207.32.195.2 btest server was initiated from a remote Linux computer. What I discovered is that when using any "duration=" value on even a single client Mikrotik would sometimes start the non-stop continuous btest.

I tried and tested a few hundred variants of the line below many times to a single Mikrotik and to many Mikrotiks (in a sequence one-after-another) and I was able to randomly repeat the problem.
/tool bandwidth-test 207.32.195.2 duration=15 protocol=udp direction=receive without-paging interval=00:00:05 remote-tx-speed=27500000

This was in a my Linux sh script as shown below ( sh ./Script-Name.sh a.b.c.d )
#
host=$1
#
echo > logfile.txt
#
/usr/bin/expect <<EOF | tee TEMP-FILE-Results.txt > ./Results-Directory/$1
spawn telnet $host
expect "Login"
send "admin+c132we\r"
expect "Password"
#
send "ClientMtikPassword\r"
expect "command"
expect ">"
#sleep 1
send "..\r"
#sleep 1
send "..\r"
#sleep 1
send "..\r"
expect ">"
send "/tool bandwidth-test 207.32.195.2 duration=15 protocol=udp direction=receive without-paging interval=00:00:05 remote-tx-speed=27500000\r"
--- Note - login & password not shown in above line ---
sleep 60
expect ">"
#
send "/quit\r"
expect eof


I tested hundreds of variants of this script and discovered that at random, the btest session would not terminate and would even continue after the telnet/ssh script has logged out of the client Mikrotik.
The random problem may of appeared to happen more often on weaker/worse/more-distant client Mikrotiks.

Until I get an understanding of what is happening, I do ask to please not use any script initiated btest sessions.

Thank you

Brian Higgins,
Thinking about it last night, I feel your scripted use of the 207.32.195.2 btest server is a neat and clever idea and pretty much in-line for what this btest server was built/configured to perform.
So at this time, I will say go ahead and do your stuff with your script - and good luck.

I would like to ask the following however:
1) What IP address would your btest clients be coming from ? I ask so that if I see a stuck btest session, then I can identify who it came from and work with you on it.
2) Your script is human triggered and not auto triggered using a cron or scheduler.
3) If/when possible, your client btest sessions are sequential (one at a time ) , instead of many at the same time.
4) Please try to limit the client btest session to be just long enough to get an accurate bandwidth measurement.

FYI - As a network engineer, I really like to see useful tools like this and I suspect your script is a very good tool. If you don't mind and if you have the time, could you post some information on your network and how it is used? I think tools like this could help many others.

It's good to hear the positive feed back - thank you.

FYI - The two different btest servers (mine and planetcoop) are both independent systems. As for planetcoop, he manages his own system(s). Together, we both offer this free btest service for the benefit of all Mikrotik admins (at our own bandwidth & time expenses). However ... If anybody wanted to donate some Mikrotik hardware equipment, I for one would be interested in bringing up multiple btest servers (the current CHR & and possibly some additional physical Mikrotik devices). I think it would be useful to be able to btest do different types of Mikrotik hardware platforms connected to a 1-gig or 10-gig Internet feed.

FYI - lol - Kinda funny ... I think that when/if planetcoop and I btest to each other, I suspect the 2 to 10 Gig bandwidth load can melt lots of network equipment along the path between us. Officially, my network is supposed to be 2-gig burstable to 4-gig using all 10-gig physical ports.

Thoughts on Bandwidth testing and Mikrotik.
Using mikrotik you can get two very different results depending on if you use TCP or UDP... basically:
UDP will give faster result because it ignores any smaller packet loss and just keep stuffing packets down the link until it is full.. Not a very useful test in my opinion.
TCP has a default settings of 20 individual TCP connections, so its like several PCs working together on the same link, good to see what you may expect from say an office connection with several users (combined usage).
For end user testing I like to use TCP with just two Individual TCP connections, this gives a good indication what a single end user will experience, and will give much the same result as a good speedtest.net server.
Another note, TCP bandwidth testing put more strain on the Mikrotik routers/CPU, and can give a false slow result.

UDP us a fire and forget protocol.
TCP is a fire and wait for an answer that the packet(s) was properly received.

I believe then when a Mikrotik is performing a btest (UDP or TCP), the remote device being tested to is also sending summary packets to the originator of the Mikrotik btest device. The summary packets may include drops, good & bandwidth during the test.

When performing a UDP (receive) btest, look at the "Lost Packets:" count. If it constant changing/increasing number, then your UDP receive btest session is slightly outrunning the throughput capability of the total end-to-end network between both Mikrotik devices. At this point, set your local Mikrotik "Remote Tx Speed:" to a slightly slower speed than what you are actually measuring (about 75 percent) and run the test again. If you still see drops on the UDP receive btest, then try 70 percent. Raise or lower your "Remote Tx Speed:" until you no longer see any errors. This is your clean error-free maximum UDP receive bandwidth rate.

Note: It is normal to see some "Lost Packets:" on the Mikrotik originating the UDP receive btest.
Note: If you see "Lost Packets:" on the Mikrotik originating a UDP send test, or a TCP send-or-receive test, then you may be experiencing some possible network problems.

Note: TCP uses RED (Random Early Detect). When a packet is lost/dropped during transmission and a response was never received, the TCP sending device performs some brief random timeouts and resumes sending TCP traffic at a slightly slower rate. You might want to google "RED -aka- Random Early Detect" and also google "TCP ACK" and google "Delayed ACK".

North Idaho Tom Jones

EDIT: additional notes -

With UDP (fire and forget), it is possible to have more-than-one/several/many UDP packets in transit going through the network at the same time. Example, a UDP packet could be 10 percent through the network and another UDP packet at 50 percent and another UDP packet at 85 percent through the network.
There is no guarantee a UDP packet made it through the network to the remote device.

With TCP (fire and wait for a received ACKnowledgement), (((Not using delayed ACK))), the TCP sending device fires one TCP packet (through the network) then waits for the ACKnowledgement packet before sending the next TCP packet.
There is a guarantee a TCP packet made it through the network to the remote device. If the device sending the TCP packet does not receive a ACKnowledgement packet, then it assumed the packet was lost and may wait a random amount of time and possibly slow down the sending of TCP packets. When all/many ACKnowledgement packets are properly received by the TCP sending device, the TCP sending device may start to increase the speed at which TCP packets are sent.

FYI - most ISP bandwidth governing devices (such as Mikrotik simple-queues for example), start automatically dropping packets when a certain bandwidth is reached. This causes bandwidth to/from an ISP customer to conform to the speed the ISP has the customer set to (RED).

Hello, an big thank you for the btest!
Its great having that server for testing purposes, I did some tests for 2 or 3 minutes to verify the %CPU of the MikroTik rules and QoS and optimizations (wasn't necessary), I'm using my first MikroTik bought from a month, RB951G-2HND, an great product! Best of that price here, had to learn a bunch shit of networking LOL.
I am from Brazil and there's the results and traceroute :D, by the way, my internet is 20/4mbps (2500KBps/500KBps) *and this MikroTik is running 1xMIPS@500MHz, the default is 600MHz*, I underclocked it because it has so much power for my own internet that I don't need even the default clock, its for long durability.

Re under clocking ...
I understand your reason for under clocking. However , in general , faster CPUs tend to offer faster/quicker propagation delay times when going through routers & firewalls & bridges. Even a 1 ms (or .05 ms) per packet delay starts to add up when sustaining full network speeds.

This is a poll question for Mikrotik admins;

I assume most of you know about the two privately owned btest servers that are available for public btests.
We have had many thank-you(s) and received a lot of praise - and we know they are both often used hundreds of times every day from all over the world.
And for that , we are happy to provide this service.

Now for my questions:
- Who would be interested in an additional set of public accessible Mikrotik tools which use the Mikrotik "Traffic Generator" ?
- Does anybody have some suggestions for how to set one up ?
- Could a public accessible Mikrotik "Traffic Generator" be run on a 100 meg connection ?
- Should it be short period high-traffic testing ?
- Should it be long period slow traffic testing ?
- Who would be interested in also hosting a public accessible Mikrotik "Traffic Generator" site ?

In my opinion, the two current public accessible btest servers work well to help determine peak up/down TDP/TCP bandwidth. However, I am thinking a "Traffic Generator" site should be low & slow sustained traffic which might run for example at 1-to-5 meg over an hour or 24 hours or possibly even a full week. And be able to sustain traffic testing to possibly 100 or more simultaneous testers at the same time.

Any thoughts and/or input and/or consideration for other types of other Mikrotik public accessible test functions/features ???

You should be very carefull providing Traffic Generator service: no authorization, one can freely generate 'test stream' to faked address, thus providing kind of DoS attack. If you allow testing only to caller's IP address, then he should be NATed by router's address - not everywhere it's possible.

Just to be clear, my implementation is done only upon one of our admins clicking the test bandwidth button inside the web admin console they use to manage their hardware, and it's hard coded to run only a single 10 second test up, followed by a single 10 second test down, it then disables the test button once it's been ran once. They would have to exit and re-enter that configuration screen to be able to run it a 2nd time. so while it's automated in the sense that it is launched programmatically through the hardware, it is initiated and requested by an admin.


Brian Higgins,
Thinking about it last night, I feel your scripted use of the 207.32.195.2 btest server is a neat and clever idea and pretty much in-line for what this btest server was built/configured to perform.
So at this time, I will say go ahead and do your stuff with your script - and good luck.

I would like to ask the following however:
1) What IP address would your btest clients be coming from ? I ask so that if I see a stuck btest session, then I can identify who it came from and work with you on it.
2) Your script is human triggered and not auto triggered using a cron or scheduler.
3) If/when possible, your client btest sessions are sequential (one at a time ) , instead of many at the same time.
4) Please try to limit the client btest session to be just long enough to get an accurate bandwidth measurement.

Huh, strange...that probably was me; I'm in Central time, so assuming you're reporting that in Pacific time, my last test being at 1:26am here sounds about right. No traffic was passed, though, and all I ever saw was something like this:

[admin@MikroTik] > /tool bandwidth-test 50.235.23.218 user=btest password=btest protocol=tcp
status: can not connect
duration: 0s
rx-current: 0bps
rx-10-second-average: 0bps
rx-total-average: 0bps
random-data: no
direction: receive

Same exact command from a MT on a different network (Suddenlink 1gbps cable):

[admin@MikroTik] > /tool bandwidth-test 50.235.23.218 user=btest password=btest protocol=tcp
status: running
duration: 30s
rx-current: 141.8Mbps
rx-10-second-average: 150.0Mbps
rx-total-average: 144.0Mbps
random-data: no
direction: receive

The ISP serving my apartment management company (~5,000 units) uses CGNAT so it's _possible_ someone else has a MT and is running btests and is appearing to be coming from my same IP address (resulting in the 55-minute block), but a) I think the chances of that are unlikely and b) you put me on the always-allow list. The ISP assures me they do not do any filtering--I assume CGNAT doesn't break btest, but clearly something's wrong, here...

Anyway, I had looked forward to seeing what the MT btest could do, but I've done plenty of other speed tests and am finding a consistent ~600mbps down and ~925mbps up from regional speedtest servers here in the midwest, so a btest isn't strictly necessary, just informative.

lol - I suspect a lengthy/extended/non-stop 10-gig btest UDP send and a second btest UDP receive between planetcoop and myself (20-gig sustained total) could very well be noticed and felt at many peer points and router-inter-connects on the Internet between us. I doubt that all of the L2 & L3 hops and peer points between us always have an extra/available/free 10-gig of un-used pipe just sitting around that is not being used during all periods of a 24-hour day. I would expect to possibly see some saturated networks and packet delay and packet loss would occur along the connection paths which could have some effects for everybody in the world having traffic to/from/through any of the servers & networks sharing the btest to btest Internet L2 L3 pathway.

I don't think it would bring the Internet down - but it would be very much noticed at many points if it was a sustained continous flood of traffic

FYI - I must be getting old !!! I remember when the Internet (arpa net) backbone was a 56 k DS0 pipe between the east coast and the west coast. I was on it back then with my 110 baud dial-up modem. DNS was not invented yet , you had to periodically download a host file which contained all of the connected machines.

So it does seem that being behind NAT breaks btest: viewtopic.php?t=12137

I was able to confirm that btest tcp runs on TCP port 2000 and that I could access both TomJ's and planetcoop's servers on TCP port 2000, so a little more digging and inspiration led me to that thread.

Oh well, like I said, I'll try again when they get IPv6 turned on (which they assure me they're working on, though my asking was apparently slightly suspicious as according to them, only people with nefarious intent, like wanting to host/run business or other prohibited services on the residential network, care about IPv6 :roll: ).

shame, when mikrotik itself has to use another server to test their speed ,, you should offer this service from your side..... at least for europe

Heads up
I think I broke the public btest server I am hosting.
This is the 207.32.195.2 btest server

FYI - I think I mistakenly blew out the P10 licence

I made a request to Mikrotik to see if I may get a (free) chr unlimited license. If they give me one, I will rebuild it with the new license.

I will be fixing it sometime mid next week.
Until then - it is kinda working , but the btest throughputs during a test may be quite slower than you are used to seeing.

Tom,

I hope they will give you the license. Your Mikrotik BW test server is a very valuable asset for Mikrotik community.

May I ask if you would please put the btest server 207.32.195.2 in an always allow list on your btest server ?

I will do the same tomorrow morning

I would like to run a 30 minute continous 1 to 2 gig sustained btest both-directions during my busy times - soon in the near future

thanks

Hey guys, I'm new to the forum and fairly new to the world of Mikrotik devices. I was looking for a way to periodically test my bandwidth and keep a log of it so that I can have a little chat with my ISP at some point. That's when I stumbled upon this thread, which appears to be exactly what I need, but I'm having some problems.

I've tried using Tom's server today with no luck, but I can't figure out why it's not working, or at least why I'm getting 0s for my results.

I was able to use planetcoop's server, but it only shows TX figures, RX just returns 0s. Any ideas as to why or where I should be looking to start troubleshooting?

Thanks,
Brian

BTEST users,

I am working on moving in the next few months and while the new home is built i will not be running btest.planetcoop.com. More to come and info here when available.

If you need specific tests prior to March, please let me know here so i can try to accommodate extra test time. Just a friendly reminder that my connect is a home connection and not related to any business.

Enjoy.

I have experience it myself many many times ...
when doing a btest (remote client to btest server -and/or/ btest server to remote clinet) , where you stop the btest and it continues no matter what.
I found that when this happens, the quickest fix is to just reboot one of the devices.

I suspect this is a un-documented-feature (aka bug). I've seen this on several versions now ...

Ya know , it would be kinda nice to see btest updated with some extra features

New features I would like to see include:
(Using Winbox to run btest)
- run for option (time and or amount of traffic to pass)
- Random simulator (all random at the same time - speed up - speed down - tcp - udp - packet size - pause - propagation delay). In other words , let btest really walk a test through it's paces. With the random function - there needs to be a maximum bandwidth setting to not exceed
- An auto ramp-up speed setting. A new function to test how fast the network is without any errors (zero packet loss) & how fast the network is maximum throughput while experiencing some normal packet loss
- In all cases have btest auto stop/quit running at some time. The only exception is if a run for option was specified
-- Reporting results - much much better results !!! something like an optional 100 line report indicating percent loss from 0 percent and bandwidth up/down tcp/udp and repeat for 1 percent loss & 2 percent loss up through 100 percent loss. And on the report indicate the acceptable effective useable speed of the network.
- Have the btest server better log what it is doing !!!!!!!!!!!

admin for 207.32.195.2 btest server :)

Funny lol - FYI -
Back around 1990, I wrote up an email/smtp type of btest server. You email it a command line in the body of the email and the server would start sending massive amounts of email back to you until you email the turn-off command to stop the test. It was a great tool for lighting up the network with massive massive sustained traffic for testing. Well - that is .. until I was hacked and somebody stole my /etc/passwd file and used it to send political spam email to my ISP customers !!! The person that stole my /etc/passwd file was running for county commissioner. Well --- you can guess what happened when he sent an email from his ISP to my special diagnostic email address. Lets just say he turned on the test on a Friday and I found out the test was running Monday morning when I came into the office. The system was full flat line on non-stop emails for days. This event got me (yes me) on the front page of the "Wall Street Journal" and on every local news tv/newspaper it was headlines. The person that triggered the test said "It was like walking down the street and inserting flyers into mail boxes - then opening a mail box with a nuclear bomb rigged to go off!". I told the news agencies he committed a felony crime and stole private data and by his criminal actions is the person who crashed 2 ISPs here in town over the weekend. He was later un-successful in his run for county commissioner.

Anyways - a note to chechito , I know what it is like to start a bandwidth test and not have it stop :)

Sorry to say, as i had posted before. I will be moving soon and i found out today that i will not be able to move my current service. btest.planetcoop.com will be offline in the first week of march. If you have any special requests, please let me know.

Thank you for allowing me to host the btest server and participating in the community. If i get better news int the future, i will bring it back.

Just a friendly reminder that my connect is a home connection and not related to any business.
I've always been curious--how on earth do you have a 10G connection at home?! :O

Or at least that's what TomJ's post #1 in this thread implies. IIRC somewhere in this thread it was speculated that you have Comcast Gigabit Pro (i.e. 2-3Gbps), which would make more sense (traceroutes to you do indicate you're on Comcast). Tom's may be on a real 10G connection, since he's an ISP...

Unfortunately with the way that my ISP implements carrier-grade NAT, I never was able to test my speed to you from here. (I was hoping that they'd get IPv6 implemented this winter so I could try.) Ah, well. Enjoy your move, and I hope there's at least some kind of decent Internet service at your new place.

Yes, i am on comcast. Yes, it was home service. The sad news is that the new home is just too far away from the network for the fiber build out. As i had said, if anything changes, i will let you guys know. As to how it is 10g, well. That will be a great story for another day.

In these final few weeks, i have removed all restrictions for testing. The 10g link is wide open for testing.

Brian,

Q1 - What is the IP address of your Mikrotik ?

Q2 - Is your Mikrotik behind another firewall / and or behing another wireless router ?

Q3 - Is the WAN IP address of your Mikrotik a live Internet IP address ?

Q4 - When testing to my btest server 207.32.195.2 , have you tried waiting for 1 hour and a few minutes prior to re-trying the btest ?

Q5 - Do you have some Mikrotik firewalls running on your Mikrotik ?

Re Q1 & Q2 & Q3 , I want to know your Mikrotik is the last device you go through to your ISP to get out to the Internet.

Re Q4 , Continued test and repeated tests are auto blocked for 1 hour , then auto released

Re Q5 , If you are running btest through a firewall , you might be only able to send and not receive. To receive, your firewall has to be turned off -or- your firewalls need some port forwards. When you receive a btest, the remote btest server will send to some TCP and/or UDP ports on your Mikrotik. If you have firewalls without port forwards, then your firewalls will block/prevent an Internet connection from the btest server to your Mikrotik.

If you have no firewalls & your Mikrotik is the last device connected to your ISP & you have waited 1-hour and a few minutes & it still will not receive btest , then there is a possiblility your ISP might have a firewall on your Internet connection. You can test this by setting up a web server & port forward port 80 to someting and see if you can http://you-ip-address and see if it works.

You can check/look/see your firewalls by looking at your Mikrotik IP firewall settings. You can make a backup and then delete all firewall rules and test it , then restore the config to put your Mikrotik back the way is was prior to purging the firewall rules.

FYI - the 207.32.195.2 btest server has no firewalls (other than the auto block after an IP has exceedeed the alloted time for btest - then after an hour it will auto purge. If you try withing the hour , the timeout to auto purge starts at 1 hour again.

Tom, thank you for your very detailed response. I see what you are driving at and I'm guessing that my topology is the issue.

My Mikrotik sits behind my ISPs DSL modem/router. Within said device, my Mikrotik is listed as a DMZ device, but it does not have its own public IP. As such, connections are theoretically not filtered in any way, but they are obviously still NATed. I'm guessing that this is why when I use planetcoop's server, I can't get RX results, but I can get TX results. However, it still doesn't explain why I get no results at all from your server.

Here are the answers to your questions:

Q1 - What is the IP address of your Mikrotik ? 192.168.0.181

Q2 - Is your Mikrotik behind another firewall / and or behing another wireless router ? It sits behind my ISP provided DSL modem / router

Q3 - Is the WAN IP address of your Mikrotik a live Internet IP address ? No

Q4 - When testing to my btest server 207.32.195.2 , have you tried waiting for 1 hour and a few minutes prior to re-trying the btest ? Yes

Q5 - Do you have some Mikrotik firewalls running on your Mikrotik ? I do have some rules running on my Mikrotik, but as stated above, there is no external firewall between the Mikrotik and the internet. Are there rules required on the Mikrotik to open the ports for the testing? What TCP / UDP ports are used?

Again, I truly appreciate the detailed response.

Thanks,
Brian

Re - your Mikrotik behind your ISPs router
I assume your Mikrotik gateways to your ISPs router Ip address of 192.168.0.1 (The inside ethernet LAN connection to your Mikrotik 192.168.0.181
I am also guessing , that that same ISP router at your home just might have a outside live-IP-address. Thus it is natting your network to the ISPs router at your location.

Sometimes - it may be worth checking out - ... The ISP router at your location might have a user-login account so that you can configure the ISP's LAN ethernet & wireless connection to you.
If so, it might be simple to login into the ISP router at your location and disable NAT and simply turn the ISP's router at your location into a bridge (IP passthrough). If so , then your Mikrotik just might get a live-internet-IP address instead. --- resulting in something your probably want.
AND/OR ....
There might be a DMZ/port forward settings in your ISP's router so that you can port-forward some ports to your Mikrotik.
If this is possible, then you could port forward the following ports to your Mikrotik
ssh
telnet
remote desktop
VPN
FTP
http
https
winbox
btest ports (I think this is a port range)

Then your Mikrotik could then use some ports for itself (winbox & btest ports) and then port-forward the other remaining ports to another computer (a linux web server for example)

Hi!

Many thanks for the courage and charity.
If someone has the opportunity to do the same - welcome!

I tested from Latvia (EU).
This is not the best way to test from EU, because both servers are located in the USA.
The first server is 50 hops (devices between) second 14. With both of them there is no objective measure, sometimes connecting, sometimes not, the second works better.

The 207.32.195.2 btest server (the one I operate), might be a little problematic right now. I am turning up some BGP circuits and testing various loads on my routed networks right now.

Re: Public-Mikrotik-Bandwidth-Test-Server(s)

Heads-Up ... FYI

info...
The 207.32.195.2 btest server for public Mikrotik admin use has been on-line since January 2016
During the last two years, I estimate it has performed somewhere between 1/4 million to 2 million btest(s).
The current average systained bandwidth is about 30 meg , which also includes those btest(s) that peak over 3-Gig and sustain 512-Meg and the btest(s) that run less than 1-Meg.

Todays btest server changes...
Because my ISP business is growing and always adding new high-speed Internet customers (3-Meg to 512-Meg accounts), I now need to reduce the amount of bandwidth I have been donating to the 207.32.195.2 btest project , so that I can keep a reserve burstable bandwidth capacity for all my customers , and not saturate my up-stream Internet feeds.
The 207.32.195.2 bandwidth limiters (simple queue) are now set at the following:
Target: ether1 (the CHR ether1 interface with IP address 207.32.195.2)
(Simple Queue , Target Upload & Target Download)
Max Limit: 105M
Burst Limit: 1250M
Burst Threshold: 50M
Burst Time: 500

The simple queue operates this way:
#1; allow sustained btest of 105-Meg
#2; If the recent bandwidth average has been below 50-Meg for (Burst-Time seconds), then allow up to 1.25-Gig (untill this this #2 line no longer is valid).

Thus , if nobody has very recently (or currently) used the btest server, then you should be able to btest up to 1.25-Gig for a short duration then auto-fall back down to 105-Meg.
If more than one person is using the 207.32.195.2 btest server at the same time, then the bandwidth limitations apply to all btesters combined. Thus if 10 users are using it at the same time, your results might be 1/10th the results you might of been expecting.

Also - keep in mind that the btest server often places a block on your IP which makes you wait for a period of time until you can continue btesting. This is done to help prevent the btest campers to start a btest and never stop their btest.

I hope to keep the 207.32.195.2 btest server on-line for many more years to come (providing I always have available bandwidth).

I/we would welcome anybody to also place their one btest server on-line for public access.
It could be a max of 10 meg or 100 meg or 1-Gig or even a 10-Gig. I am sure the community would be thankfull for any additional btest servers (especially in different locations throughout the world).

Because my ISP business is growing and always adding new high-speed Internet customers (3-Meg to 512-Meg accounts), I now need to reduce the amount of bandwidth I have been donating to the 207.32.195.2 btest project , so that I can keep a reserve burstable bandwidth capacity for all my customers , and not saturate my up-stream Internet feeds.
The 207.32.195.2 bandwidth limiters (simple queue) are now set at the following:
Target: ether1 (the CHR ether1 interface with IP address 207.32.195.2)
(Simple Queue , Target Upload & Target Download)
Max Limit: 105M
Burst Limit: 1250M
Burst Threshold: 50M
Burst Time: 500

The simple queue operates this way:
#1; allow sustained btest of 105-Meg
#2; If the recent bandwidth average has been below 50-Meg for (Burst-Time seconds), then allow up to 1.25-Gig (untill this this #2 line no longer is valid).

Thus , if nobody has very recently (or currently) used the btest server, then you should be able to btest up to 1.25-Gig for a short duration then auto-fall back down to 105-Meg.
If more than one person is using the 207.32.195.2 btest server at the same time, then the bandwidth limitations apply to all btesters combined. Thus if 10 users are using it at the same time, your results might be 1/10th the results you might of been expecting.

Also - keep in mind that the btest server often places a block on your IP which makes you wait for a period of time until you can continue btesting. This is done to help prevent the btest campers to start a btest and never stop their btest.

I hope to keep the 207.32.195.2 btest server on-line for many more years to come (providing I always have available bandwidth).

I/we would welcome anybody to also place their one btest server on-line for public access.
It could be a max of 10 meg or 100 meg or 1-Gig or even a 10-Gig. I am sure the community would be thankfull for any additional btest servers (especially in different locations throughout the world).

I have managed to keep btest.planetcoop.com online yet. During my new home move, i have made arrangements to keep it online. I expect to take my btest.planetcoop.com down around June first now. if i can keep it online in any capacity, I will let you know.

Thank you,

Thanks for the resource! I can't tell you how many times it's been very useful for us!

We're currently building out a new 10G datacenter in our head-end and once we have the new ESXi cluster going I'd like to host a btest server. We'll have plenty of upload available and it's not going to be used.

btest server change effective immediately , aka - right now (March 22, 2018)
btest server 207.32.195.2 was moved to 207.32.194.24
Same server , same settings .. Just IP renumbered now to 207.32.194.24

btest user:btest
btest password: btest

FYI: My business is growing. We needed the entire 207.32.195.0/24 Class C netblock for some new networks we are building. Normally , I would of given a prior notice but something came up today and I had to rush a re-number on this btest server.

Heads up , on the btest server 207.32.194.24 server , I just added some IP services Available-From settings.
I think the btest server is still running for everybody on the internet - however , for the IP services such as telnet , ssh , winbox , www , ftp connections , they are now blocked (except by my networks).

If I am correct - btest uses ports from 2000 on up , which is not one of the Mikrotik - IP - Services listed services.

If btest stops working , please let me know.

North Idaho Tom Jones


EDIT - added the note below:
Whoever is winbox/dude 213.57.88.215 , I am seeing a repeated connection every 30 seconds (every 30 seconds !)
Stop it , or explain it or I will have to block your network.
Or ... I may assume you are a potential hacker trying to break into my Mikrotik (possibly trying to use a recent vulnerability in ROS which Mikrotik has informed us about)

Firstly thanks to Tom for providing this Service
I dunno if you guys can help me out, we have a 360Mb connection here based in Europe. I believe that we are having a few issues on the network where as we don't seem to be able to max out the connection from normal internet use, I am unsure if the issue is with the tcp bandwidth test having so many hops to Toms server or is the issue with our provider, before I call them out i would like a bit of reassurance that i am correct.
When testing to Tom's server I can pull the full 360Mb no problem at all but by TCP I can only pull ~200Mb across the link (Am taking the figures from the Ethernet Port "Combo 1")

I have a firewall rule in the btest server. Connections to the btest server will eventually get blocked. Then the remote admin will need to wait for a timer to expire. After the btest FW timer expires, then the remote btest user can test again. Then is to help prevent abuse and/or excessive use - thus freeing up bandwidth for other btesters.

We've used the public server for a long time with no issues. For the last few days we are unable to connect. We use tcp. We are getting either connect which just hangs, or Device incompatible . We tried to set the connect count to 1 and it immediately disconnects. Did something change recently? We are on the latest bug fix release.

I might be wrong here - but I believe I recently read that a Mikrotik btest client (one of your Mikrotiks) now needs to be the same ROS version at the Mikrotik btest server (if passwords are used).
My 207.32.194.24 btest server uses user=btest and password=btest , thus I suspect the client Mikrotik needs to be the same ROS version.
I am currently using ROS version 6.43

So - as a test , try upgrading a client btest Mikrotik to ROS version 6.43 and see if it works.

Note 1: A couple of days ago , I had somebody pm me about their btest not running to my btest server , they then upgraded to 6.43 and the btest worked.

Note 2: I think I also read that if there is no btest password configured on the btest server (or authentication not enabled "don't remember exactly" ) that any cleint of any ROS version can then perform a btest


Please try upgrading a client btest Mikrotik and test it - and - please post her to let me know if I am correct about the matching ROS versions if btest passwords are used.


Also of note - a possible work-around with different ROS versions might be for me to create a second btest user on my btest server that does not have a password. I will have to look into what security issues that opens up if not configured correctly on my btest server.

!) api - changed authentication process (https://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:API#Initial_login);
!) backup - do not encrypt backup file unless password is provided;
!) btest - requires at least v6.43 Bandwidth Test client when connecting to v6.43 or later version server except when authentication is not required;
!) cloud - added IPv6 support;
!) cloud - added support for licensed CHR instances (including trial);
!) cloud - reworked "/ip cloud ddns-enabled" implementation (suggested to disable service and re-enable after installation process);
!) radius - use MS-CHAPv2 for "login" service authentication;
!) romon - require at least v6.43 RoMON agent when connecting to v6.43 or later RoMON client device;
!) webfig - improved authentication process;
!) winbox - improved authentication process excluding man-in-the-middle possibility;
!) winbox - minimal required version is v3.15;

Would you be able to create another user? It doesn't seem like it would be an issue because everyone knows the password anyway. If you can't, then everyone would need to be on your ros version which won't work for a lot of setups. If you could, that would be great. Thanks for all the help.

Maybe the authentication requirement on the public btest servers should be switched off. What is its meaning when the user and password is publicly known?

Thanks for running this bandwidth test server by the way!

I was able to get a 1.5Gbit test from my newly acquired 10G line but I wasn't able to grab a screenshot of it in time. Just waiting patiently for the rate limiting to settle down so I can try again.

It's hard nowadays to validate that ISPs actually deliver on what they promise, so I really appreciate you running this for free!

[If ya wanna break some graphs, I would love to schedule a time and see what happens without a rate limit! :) ]

For sure, but the 100mbits limitation might be problematic. Also I couldn't guarantee such speed to be achievable always, which could lead to lower measurements. Therefore the question if such thing makes sense.

On the forum , your server could be listed as the following limitations (what ever you want worded)
- no guarantee on bandwidth availablility for btest (ing)
- no guarantee on low/hi measurements

--- You will become rich
--- Women will flock around you for your attention
--- You will win every game at casinos and lottery
--- Your network will run faster
--- You will have lots of free time
----------or----------
--- You will go broke paying for the additional bandwidth of a btest server
--- Other that your wife , nobody knows who you are
--- You will still be a looser at everything you do
--- Your network will be slower because it now experiences high bandwidth btest loads
--- You will be busy answering questions (via this forum, email, facebook and PM) about why they can't btest to you
----------or----------
--- Somewhere between the maximums there is a medium

Anybody remember my original post that eventually led to a public btest server ?
I made a suggestion about everybody participating in a btest day for everybody to btest to/from to measure bandwidth around the world. Then somebody made a post stating
"The day the Internet broke".


Anyways , I believe all of us Mikrotik admins would welcome any public access btest servers of any speeds/capabilities.

hmmm, My btest server should be clean and normal. I just rebooted it.

However , I have sometimes seen a stuck btest. Example - a remote btest is started and the remote Mikrotik device looses connectivity to the Internet which a few times has resulted in the btest server still running. This is rare when it happens. The solution is normally to reboot the btest server or the btest client then the problem stops. This used to happen only when under loads greater than 2-gig sustained - however I have not seen btest get stuck in at least 1/2 a year now...

Of note - I have mostly seen stuck btest(s) on x86 Mikrotiks or slower physical Mikrotiks devices running btest. I have never seen a CHR to CHR stuck btest with vmxnet3 10-gig network interfaces - but in the past , I have seen it a few times with just about everything else (other than a CHR) when a btest is saturating a link.

Nice :)

I just ran some btest(s) from my 207.32.194.24 btest server to your 103.80.55.2 btest server.
UDP send test and UDP receive btest each way comes close to 150 meg (130 to 148 meg).
TCP send test and TCP receive test each btest at around 80 meg.

Is this going to be a perminate btest server ?
Where are you located ?
What kind of Mikrotik hardware/software are you using ?
How fast under perfect conditions should somebody be able to btest to ?
Are you using any rate-limiting queues fire-wall rules so that you do not have continous never go away sustained btest (btest abusers) ?
Do you have a btest policy/user-rules you would like to state ?
Would you like me to post/edit-add information about your btest server on the 1'st post in this btest forum?

Hi Tom,

This is a great service, thanks for offering to the community.

For me it works about 20 sec, then traffic is completely blocked for XX minutes. I am not sure if it is by design but this turns out to be a bit short to do any sort of stability controls. Tested using UDP with a 100mbps symmetrical connection.

Yo , heads up to --> 131-161-104-26.rev.netcorporativa.com.br


The btest server 207.32.194.24 is intended for brief btest speed testing to show your maximum peak throughput. When any btester holds executes and holds an extended continouis btest, the simple-queue settings will kick in and limit all btest sessions for all btesters to a combined 105 Meg maximum. This means that a Mikrotik admin that would may normally acheive 1-Gig on a btest to my server will now get 105 Meg or less (because somebody is not performing a brief btest and instead keeping an extended btest session running which will then have negative slower results for anybody else also measuring a btest throughput speed test.

FYI

I like the idea of PCQ , however (if I am correct in my thinking) it would then be possible to have a degrading effect on my Internet feeds to my customers. With PCQs, it would then be possible to have a combined total btest throughput load greater than my Internet feeds can support which could then possibly have a negative impact effect on my many customer connections to the Internet.

How do you host a server?
Re: How do you host a ( btest ) server ?
Answer - From North Idaho Tom Jones - admin for btest server 207.32.194.24

Hosting a btest server:
- 1st ; Mikrotik does not oficially endorse or host any btest servers that I know of. Back in 2016, I just made a btest server and posted it to the Mikrotik forums.
- 2nd ; All you need to do is the following:
-- a) configure a Mikrotik (I use a CHR) with a live IP address (so that remote Internet btest-ers can test to it ( TCP send & receive and also UDP send & receive )
-- b) disable any firewalls on the btest server (My btest server does not have any firewalls , I did this so that remote btesters and performs btests to/from it).
--c) on the new btest server you are creating , crease a " btest " user and a " btest " group.
My " btest " user is a member of the " btest " group
My " btest " group has only the following Policies checked " test & winbox & romon & tik.app "
--d) under IP Services , modify every IP Service to only have your IP addresses.
example: winbox Port 8282 should have one or multiple entires for your IP addresses
Note: Use IP Services to pervent others out on the Internet from telnet-ing and/or ssh-ing and/or winbox-ing (an entry for each service)

Then after your new btest server is up and running , simply post here in this forum your IP address and btest user name and password ( I would assume btest and btest ) along with information about where you are , who you are, and what speeds your server can handle for btesting , also include any policy you would like to state so that others can follow your desired btest server policies.
I will then add your btest server to the first posting of this Mikrotik btest forum topic.
If/when you have your btest server running, you are welcome to private message me so that I can take a look at it to make sure everyting looks OK.
If you would like some help , just PM me and I can winbox into your new btest server and configure it for you.

How do you run a bandwidth server on linux?
Hmmm … How do you run a bandwidth server on linux?

Well , If I were to run a " btest " server on a Linux operating system , I would do it this way:
- 1st , install VMware ESX. This is a free hypervisor for systems such as Linux.
Note - not to be confused with VMware ESXi (which also has a Unix/BSD/Linux operating system)
- 2 , with VMware ESX , you should now be able to run several different guest operating systems at the same time.
- 3 , next , I would purchase a 64-bit Mikrotik router operating system ( CHR )
- 4 , that's 99 percent what to do , the other 1 percent is just basic configuration.

--- Another possible way to do this at zero cost , I have not tested this but it should work ---
- 1st , install Wine on your Linux operating system (Wine lets you run in a near windows environment)
- 2nd , download from Mikrotik something called " btest ". This is a Mikrotik program which will perform btest's both as a client and as a server. ( I've used Mikrotik's btest program on my Windows computers to test network throughput ).

1st - As of this posting right now (March 14th 2019) , this forum topic "Public-Mikrotik-Bandwidth-Test-Server(s)" which was started around 3 years ago currently has 332,700 views.
Anybody have a prediction when this topic will hit 1/3 of a million (333,333) views ?
My guess is around the last day of this month.

2nd - This is more of a Mikrotik new-feature wish list:
I would like to see a new optional Mikrotik ROS package which can perform http speedtests between Mikrotiks and client connected computers (something similar to http://my-mikrotik-IP-address/speed-btest).
… Where an optional login/password could be used to perform a http UDP-or-TCP up-or-down bandwidth test
… Where a client computer behind NATted Mikrotik could perform speedtests to their inside Mikrotik gateway IP address , and/or to any Mikrotik IP address out on the Internet.
… Where the Mikrotik admin has some control for maximum bandwidth, number of simultaneous speed-btest testers, and setting to limit how often a client can perform a http speed-btest.
… The Mikrotik http speed-btest should be a simple TCP-up, then TCP-down, then UDP-up then UDP down, followed by a round-trip-ping response time.
… The output after the http speed-btest could then report all kinds of information , including the number of dropped packets during each test -and- it would also be nice to show at what speeds RED ( Random Early Detection ) begins kicking in with dropped packets.
I suspect this type of a Speed-btest server could become very very popular. And the http speed-btest web page could show some pre-configured ISP hosting information and a URL indicating "Powered by Mikrotik" which links to Mikrotik. Mikrotik just might get a boost in sales from something like this.

Mikrotik provide test servers
Re : Mikrotik provide test servers

Are you asking " Does Mikrotik provide public btest servers to test to ? "
Answer: No (at least I don't think so)

Are you asking " Does Mikrotik provide (free) physical routers to host a public btest server ? "
Answer: No

Are you asking " Does Mikrotik provide free ROS (CHR) software to host a public btest server? "
Answer: No

Are you asking " Does Mikrotik offset your expense to host a public btest server? "
Answer: No

Are you asking " What are the benefits of hosting a public btest server? "
Answer: You will help hundreds/thousands/tens-of-thousands of network admins by letting them test to your public btest server.

Are you asking " Do I need permission from Mikrotik to host a free public btest server? "
Answer: No

It would be nice if Mikrotik came out with an optional ROS server package which would allow computers to perform http speedtests to a Mikrotik.

Be good if they came up with a simple Linux script you could run to host a test server, or have RouterOS test using standard files that the Speedtest web sites use like 100MB bin files.

Holey smokes …
5 seconds after rebooting the btest server ( 207.32.194.24 ) , I had 3 btesters connected to it.
Either we have some automated bot btesters running or some in this forum are very fast at reading my prior post and then btesting -or- a combination of both.

FYI - just now ( April 24th 2019 @ 2PM North Idaho time )
I updated/upgraded the 207.32.194.24 public access btest server
From: ROS version 6.44.2

FYI

On average, per every 15 minutes , my 207.32.194.24 btest server will have around 30 different/unique IP addresses of remote Mikrotik devices which have performed a btest.
That's an average of a btest session starting every 30 seconds.

For the last 30 days , the 207.32.194.24 btest server as a 30 day sustained average rate transfer of :
35 meg-bits-per-second to the remote btest client
20 meg-bit-per-second from the remote btest clinet
Combined up/down is 55 meg-bits-per-second

Now a little math to calculate bits per year at current rate : ( ( ( ( 55 meg-bits-per-second * 60 ) * 60 ) * 24 ) * 365 ) = 1,734,480,000,000,000 bits
- that's 1,734 terra-bits !!! also known as 217 terra-bytes
- - - Question - When is the last time you moved 217 terra-bytes to/from the Internet that was not directly related to your Internet customer traffic ?

Note - the above data is "average" not "peak" !

207.32.194.24
I had to reboot it ?

Strange , this is the 3rd time in the last few months I had to reboot it.

The problem started 1 or 2 or 3 ROS versions ago.
What happens is the "BTest-Server-Settings" [x] Enabled and the [x] Authenticate check boxes both somehow become un-checked.
When I reboot my 207.32.194.24 CHR btest server, it comes back with both settings checked again.
Strange … … …
I have not made any changes to the btest server for more than a year - except when a new version of ROS comes out , then I upgrade it.

Is anybody else seeing other strange problems with btest servers or related strange things since the last version (or two) of ROS ?

If it happens again in the near future , I'll send info to Mikrotik's tech support and let them know what I am experiencing with the 207.32.194.24 btest server.

Little help here …
I am just now starting to work with IPv6 , grrrrrr
Although I've been doing IP networking for almost 30 years now , I've never played with IPv6
My bad
Anyways, I have setup a test Mikrotik running IPv4 and IPv6 ( not the 207.32.194.24 server) , and I wish to ask if somebody has a IPv6 Mikrotik I can perform a few IPv6 btest(s) to/from.
If somebody is willing to assist, you can post here or PM me.

(FYI - my test IPv6 Mikrotik is on another ISP network I do not manage)
When I get IPv6 running on my network, I may create two more btest servers so that I end up with 3 btest servers. 1-Only IPv4 , 2-Only IPv6, 3-IPv4&IPv6 btest servers. (If Mikrotik is willing to donate the CHR software when I have IPv6 running on my ISP network).

Nope - The 207.32.194.24 btest server was down again.
I just rebooted it - it is now up again
It looks like it quit working May 16th at about 8PM PST (Los Angeles time)

The 207.32.194.24 btest server somehow had both the btest enabled & authenticate unchecked.
A reboot of the btest server got it back on-line without making any changes.
I am pretty sure this is a Mikrotik CHR ROS problem - because I have not made any changes to it this year.
Hey Mikrotik - you reading this - I suspect there may be something going on ….

Well - rather strange - but It looks like a found a Band-Aid solution temp fix which appears to keep the 207.32.194.24 btest server on-line and available without the random problem where the btest server keeps disabling itself.
What I did was this:
- disable all IP services on the Mikrotik CHR except for www
- change the default www port from 80 to another port number

If you encounter problems with the 207.32.194.24 btest server not responding, please post & let me know.

FYI - I suspect other tik devices could possibly be experiencing the same issue where the IP service (btest in my case) for no reason suddenly quits.

same today. Btest server down. I guess its because this is the only server available and many users flood it. Sorry to see only North Idaho Tom Jones hosting one. Someone should step up and offer more severs for the community. We cant realistically expect that only one server will quench the thirst of mikrotik users worldwide.

Thanks NITJ for the service so far. KUDOS

Some good news :D

The btest server 207.32.194.24 is now also IPv6 :)

IPv4 address: 207.32.194.24
IPv6 address: 2605:4e40:0:1fe::

user: btest
password: btest

If I do not see any abuse , then I will keep the IPv6 address also

FYI - update on the btest server(s) for:
IPv4 address: 207.32.194.24
IPv6 address: 2605:4e40:0:1fe::

A few moments ago , I made the following changes to the public accessible btest server:
#1 - Instead of having a single ether1 with both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses , I changed the server so that it is now:
ether1: IPv4 address: 207.32.194.24
ether2: IPv6 address: 2605:4e40:0:1fe::
I did this so that I can get clear graphs for IPv4 traffic and another graph for IPv6 traffic

#2 - I changed the firewall rules (for IPv4 and IPv6) where the wait-time-delay was 15 minutes , the new wait-time-delay is 1 hour.
This is the time a previous btester must wait until they can btest again. I made this test because I see there are some remote users who had scripts that would auto-script a best to my btest server every 15 minutes. This btest server is not intended to be used as a traffic graphing system for other networks. It is intended for Mikrotik admins to be able to manually perform brief btest(s) to verify and test their network reliability and throughput (from time to time - not automatically tested on a pre-configured script schedule).

I would like to ask for some feedback if you don't mind …
--- Who and where-are-you to those who use the btest server ?
--- Does the new IPv6 btest address appear to be working correctly ?
--- And comments are always welcome ……

Hi Tom,

Hope to be near you in Northern Idaho very soon, but for now NE Texas. When I connect to other MikroTiks on our WAN, I get a speedtest back as I would expect, but when I connect to yours, I get a flatline zero. Do I need to change any settings? Thanks for the server.

I've used it perhaps a dozen times over the past 18 months from the region surrounding Wickenburg, Arizona, to ensure periodically that WAN providers are (still) offering the speeds my clients are paying for. This would be much more difficult to do without the service you offer, so thank you so much.

I just don't get it. If I connect to another MikroTik on our WAN, I see a normal throughput graph, but if I connect to this one, it's a 0 flat-line like a patient in asystole. What am I missing?
