We have 7Mbps internet leased line connected to cisco router. I want to check and confirm that we are getting 7Mbps speed.
What to do to check the same?Any command will help me or any software need to install?
speedtest.net is a good place or downloading a service pack from microsoft will give you a good idea of download speed
we have a 100MB line here and pull around 9MB/sec here
Thanks ben for your reply..
I am checking on speedtest from last few days, but results are ont stable..sometimes its 9Mbps and sometimes 5Mbps and uploading speed is not more than 1Mbps..and also I am downloading 1 file with the speed of 55Kbps..
So ant other way to check? Also can you please mention the name of the microsoft tool u mentioned in the reply.
Where are you downloading the file from? I normally download a service pack from Microsoft’s website as well almost always get good speed
What is you leased line delivered as?
I would suggest you to use tool "iperf" to check the available bandwidth.
And alternately you can check speedtest.net, this may not give you the accurate results but the above one which is "iperf" will give you the correct details because I have tested it in my network and confirmed.
The below is the good link for your reference about iperf how to use and all
Hope this helps you.

Hi Abhisar patil ,
Try doing FTP upload/download from the head end and try to find out whether you are able to utilize the full bandwidth.
Try this testing bandwidth software called IPerf.
There are many monitoring tools in the Internet to check the bandwidth utilization like mrtg,prtg, cacti etc (most of them are freeware),
P.S : Please mark this thread as answered if you feel your query is resolved. Do rate helpful posts.
If you have the budget, get SolarWinds Toolset Eng Edition. They have great tools! Use the guagues tool and check your b/w in realtime (ok! it's not real-time, it has a 3-sec delay, but it's an awesome tool! to have) HTH, Elyinn.-
I would say use multiple FTP streams and sum all of them up.
Speedtest and other speed measuring sites are usually used for testing speeds for asynchronous lines and the results may not always be accurate.
You can simply do that speed test using iperf try downloading the software in the link given below.
Install the software first.
Then use below page to see the steps.
