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 ).

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

Thu Mar 14, 2019 5:05 pm

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

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" !

btest still working ?
from croatia not working
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.

Thanks Tom, I did browse through many pages trying to find the latest syntax but apparently missed it. Works great now, really appreciate it.

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

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

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?

Sorry for what may be an obvious question, but are you connecting to it with the bandwidth test tool, or just connecting to it?

Thanks for the reply, and no apology necessary. I realize you have to ask in these situations. I am connecting under Tools > Bandwidth Test. When I get a connect while attached to the MikroTik via a browser I get a flat line. If I connect to a remote MikroTik across on of our VPN tunnels, I get 35 Mbps which is the upload bandwidth limitation for the remote MikroTik. Last night I found that I could connect to this one via Winbox, but when I did, I got 1200 bps (12kbps). Today if I connect via Winbox I get 0 just like browser based. Again, if I connect to our other MikroTik across the VPN via Winbox I get 35 Mbps.

Is the firmware out of date by chance? I'm running 6.45.1 on a CCR but when I try to do a test to 207.32.194.24 it just sits at the connecting phase. I'm located in Central Texas trying to check the throughput of a new service upgrade on the wan.

If you post your WAN IP address, I can check the btest server and see if there is something stuck in my auto-updating queues and fw auto-timeout rules.

Probably something in the following range: 129.205. 144.0/24

They are changed around so can't give you a 100% on the last digit.

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

There simply just has to be a bug in the Mikrotik ROS !!!
On the public btest server 207.32.194.24 ( also IPv6 2605:4e40:0:1fe:: ) , the btest server settings somehow changed to :
btest server DISABLED (check box not checked)
btest server Authenticate DISABLED (check box not checked)

I re-enabled the two settings and rebooted the btest server

Give it a try and see if the btest server is now working.

((( This simply just has to be a bug in ROS )))
I have two CPUs assigned to my VMware ESXi btest server
I have 1-Gig of RAM assigned to my VMware ESXi btest server
Last time - I made a band-aid fix by disabling Winbox on the server - I will again disable it and see if those two settings again somehow get disabled

Still no joy, goes straight to disconnected.

Can traceroute to site although it looks like you have ICMP rate limiter on?

Hello, I've just tested to both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses from one of my RB2011 (Slovakia, Central Europe) on ROS 6.45.11 and both worked great, Thank you!

On IPv4 I've got approximately 75/65Mbps and IPv6 was even 95/85Mbps (UDP both way).
Those speeds are good enough for the installation site, but I wonder what would cause such a difference?
Could it be just my provider prioritizing IPv6? Configuration issue on my side? Is it to be expected?

In my opinion …
There are two methods to implement IPv6 routers/networks (with the current IPv4 networks).
- use/build Dual-Stack routers/networks ( were routers in a network are both IPv4 and IPv6 at the same time )
- Add IPv6 routers/networks next to existing IPv4 routers/networks (where you have a mix of only IPv4 routers/networks -and- only IPv6 routers/networks)

Both methods to implement IPv6 work well. ( I'm building both types in my IPS/WISP networks - where some networks use only IPv4 sitting next to only IPv6 routers/network … and other parts of my network are Dual-Stack ( both IPv4 and IPv6 ). There are advantages of both methods to implement IPv6 into your network.
If an IPv4 router is pretty busy/saturated then you have two options , upgrade hardware to support both IPv4 and IPv6 - - - or - - - add additional IPv6 only hardware next to your existing IPv4 hardware. There are pros and cons of both methods.

Edit: Also , IPv6 traffic through the Internet may use different paths (hops) through the Internet verses IPv4 paths (hops). Thus IPv6 traffic has a high possibility of going through totally physically different routers/switches/networks that IPv4 traffic goes through.

In answer to your question - I suspect it simply comes down to what method each Internet hop and built and how busy each device is.

Can you please see if 173.27.22.214 got put on a block list?

Tom, did you ever get to fixing the speed test server?

Having a similar issue on my CCR and it only works after a reboot for a while.

Says "connecting" "disconnected" whenever I try testing.

North Idaho Tom Jones - Public btest server

Sorry about not responding to some of the posts here. I've been busy on some ISP/WISP/networking projects.

FYI - I just now ( September 13th 2019 ) updated the btest server from ROS version 6.45.3 to version 6.45.6

I also cleared out some of the btest Address-Lists ( this list auto populates when you perform a btest and is supposed to auto-unpopulated after a time-out period and elapsed )

Great idea if You have a good infrastructure and inet line! Thank You!
I was always wondering why MikroTik didn't do that with few bunch of load balanced servers.
I will test it in the evening CET.

- Sustained traffic is limited to 100 Meg up/down (after about 30 to 60 seconds)
This btest server was not designed or intended for any sustained continuous long-running btest(s). A firewall rule will kick in to prevent saturation of my ISP/WISP bandwidth.

Please only perform brief btest(s) to measure your peak Up/Down traffic.
Normally peak btest measurements can be performed in under 20 seconds.

Hello to South America :)

I currently have the btest server off-line.
I am doing some server updates on my network.
It should be back on-line in a couple of hours.

Hi Tom,
From South Africa, I make use of this service every now and then (once or twice a week), typically when a customer says he is not getting full speed.
Currently only use IPv4 for testing

This is an active thread.
The btest server is normally running 24 hours a day 7 days a week 365 days a year
The btest server is running right now. I just checked it.

If you are unable to connect to the btest server ..
- wait a few hours
- after waiting , try performing a 30 second btest
- If you are still unable to connect to the btest with the server , then check your firewalls. The btest server only has one firewall configuration which makes recent remote btest-ers have to wait until they can btest again.
--- Are you testing from behind a firewall ?
--- Is your Mikrotik a firewall ?

Hello team,

Any chance there is a 10G btest server out there I could use for a quick bandwidth test?

It would be a one time thing, I have recently upgraded my home fiber connection to a 10G one, just trying to push it all the way to make sure the ISP is really delivering.

Here are the latest test results I achieve with the current btest server mentioned in the first post (Thank you @TomjNorthIdao!).

It would be a one time thing, I have recently upgraded my home fiber connection to a 10G one, just trying to push it all the way to make sure the ISP is really delivering.

Here are the latest test results I achieve with the current btest server mentioned in the first post (Thank you @TomjNorthIdao!).
[mikrotik] > /tool bandwidth-test 207.32.194.24 user=btest password=btest direction=both

Best regards
shugnet - I wish I had the ability to briefly drop my bandwidth queues on the 207.32.194.24 public btest server. However , I do not have the extra reserve capacity to offer a btest server at anything beyond what it is already doing because as an ISP, WISP , I am already running near capacity on my Internet connection feeds.

FYI - I just upgraded the ROS firmware on the public access btest server.
It's now; 6.46

If you encounter any issues with the btest server, please post and let me/us know.

If you are unable to connect to the btest server ..
- wait a few hours
- after waiting , try performing a 30 second btest
- If you are still unable to connect to the btest with the server , then check your firewalls. The btest server only has one firewall configuration which makes recent remote btest-ers have to wait until they can btest again.
--- Are you testing from behind a firewall ?
--- Is your Mikrotik a firewall ?

WIth your IP information, I can look at my logs

Is the bandwidth test server down? The last successful test I ran from two different routers on three different WAN connections was Dec 28.

Hi all, I tried this morning a speed test but the router seem to be unable to connect ... "Connecting" is the last step i see in the process.

I'm running last Firmware 06.46.1 and Router Model :SXT R

There's some issue with server or is my side not properly working ?
Test server 207.32.194.24 is pingable but no connection from Mikrotik router test utility.

Thank you for some ideas,
Marco

Tom,

I could ping the btest server when it wasn't able to connect for the bandwidth test.

Not sure if you changed something but this morning was the first time since Dec 28 where I'm now able to successfully run bandwidth tests again.

207.32.194.24 test server may be down.

It doesn't respond to ping. Traceroute shows the last reachable hop as 207.32.194.6

Hmmm , this morning I had to reboot the btest server.

For some reason, the btest settings got un-checked ( login and service ).
I've seen this CHR based btest server do this a few times last year.


While I was at it, I upgraded from 6.46.1 to 6.46.2
Anyways, it should be running now.

Have you blocked any countries? (Iran)
Tried to connect to 207.32.194.24 but it says can't connect. Tried to ping and it returns timeouts ...

EDIT: It gets stuck at connecting for a while and then gives the can't connect error.

Hello everyone,

I recently ordered a 10 Gbps upgrade for my WISP's primary internet circuit, but I don't believe that I am receiving the full 10 Gbps. Is there anyone with a 10 Gbps btest server who could help me out? I can provide my public IP for my btest server through other means if someone wants to swap test server information.

Excuse the double post, but after reading through this entire thread and employing some of the scripts that have already been posted. I feel relatively safe putting this out here. Please don't make me regret it.

Please let me know if you guys are able to achieve 10 Gbps symmetrical connections

Thanks, Tom. I actually just set up a queue for burst at 4 Gbps with sustained speeds at 1 Gbps. Figured it might be bad if it maxed my connection briefly.

Heads up, I had to temporarily power-off the public access btest server I manage.

Here in the U.S. , there are thousands of business every where that have laid-off workers , and many of those workers are now working from home. Additionally, Netflix (and other on-line movie video sources) are getting increased bandwidth usage. In some locations, the Internet is experiencing much greater than normal bandwidth and some ISPs are experiencing problems. To help my ISP/WISP operations, I have temporarily disabled the btest server so that I can divert the normal ( peaking up to 2-Gig btest traffic) bandwidth to my customers.

I promise to return the btest server back on-line just as soon as my network stabilizes and the bandwidth is once again available.
This is the first time in over 4-years I have taken this btest server off-line for anything other than basic maintenance.

Everybody , be safe and take proper precautions to protect your ISP/WISP, business, customer and employees. And consider preparing your network(s) for a possible network increase of anywhere from 5 percent to 75 percent. So far, I am only at an additional 5 percent but I am getting ready for an additional 50 percent increase very soon to hit our networks.

A few minutes ago, I brought my public access btest server back on-line.
It is now running again - however , I reduced the maximum btest throughput (using multiple Simple-Queues) to 100 Meg.

Normally this btest server has has the ability to btest at greater than Gig Internet best speeds.
Because of the Corona virus pandemic and most of my customers now working from home and schooling from home, my ISP Internet bandwidth has jumped an additional 25 percent and sometimes peaks at an additional 150+ percent higher than my normal Internet traffic.

You are again welcome to use my btest server again. I ask that you please please please only perform short btest(s) to my server (because my Internet feeds are currently operating at much greater loads than normal.

Thanks for hosting the server! Just did a test in NJ on Comcast...actually getting more than advertised. I have 300 D/L and seeing 370..I'll take it.! 10 U/L but showing 12...nice...

Moving from DOCSIS 3.0 this weekend to 3.1 so will see if that has any impact at all. I dont expect it to but it will let me know if the newer Netgear is better or worse than my existing Netgear modem

From time to time, the Mikrotik btest server ( on CHR ) will just quit working and the btest service will stop and show un-checked

Here's a tip for those wanting to test bandwidth. Especially if under 1Gbps.

I used my Azure account to create a Windows 10 Pro virtual machine in a region near me with a 1Gbps link.

RDPed into it, disabled the firewall for ease, and downloaded the Mikrotik btest.exe program (https://mt.lv/btest)

Using this, I was able to successfully test the capabilities of my link for as long as I needed, when I needed.

This doesn't take long to setup, and if destroyed afterwards only cost pennies.
