If you go to setting and go to v0.3.4. It works fine for me.

I also updated python and pip for 6.7 and added setuptools as a separate package

Thanks for that. Just in case someone else has this issue and to expand upon what @dmacias said. I had to go into Nerdtools and set it to download and install the pip package. Once that was done every

I have installed this plugin and I have used the Scheduler to set it to run hourly.  But when I go to the history screen I only see the tests that I have run manually.  Does the Scheduler not work properly or am I doing something wrong?

It should work. I would try changing the settings to something else apply then change them back and apply. I have mine run at 3am everyday. I will change it to hourly and report back.

I can confirm the hourly setting is broke. Anyone who already had it set is fine. Just new settings don't work for hourly.

Not sure. A bad download or something. I bumped the version to 2017.02.13 anyway cause I don't like the lettered versions. Check for updates and try again.

Any ideas why this seems to report extremely low speeds for me?  I am on AT&T fiber and have 1GB up and down but this is my result  6126704707.png

 

I can send things using resilio sync faster than this, so I know it is not accurate.  Is there anything I need to change to get a more accurate result?

It could be a number of things but results for gig speeds have never been accurate with the cli script. Could be UnRAID version too. There are discrepancies between using a speedtest docker and my plugin both using the same python and script. So comparing docker speeds to bare metal can differ too.

ok that is good to know.  Been trying to troubleshoot some remote plex buffering issues so that was the first place I started.

Hey dmacias,

I've tried to install Prev version but the version saved in plugin folder must be this one giving issues because it gives the same error.

 

Pls. help!

Sorry I forgot to update the plugin with the correct python.

I just noticed this message on my console:  "chmod:  cannot operate on dangling symlink '/usr/sbin/speedtest-linux'.  Does anyone else see this?

Thanks. Forgot to remove that when I removed speedtest-linux.

Looks like I can't connect securely anymore. If I try to run a test I get this in the dialog box and log when secure connection is enabled. Looks like when enabling secure connection Host: is blank.

 

First log entry is secure connection disabled, second is secure connection disabled.

Do you have a manual host set or is it auto?

Great Plugin! Thanks. I did look through the topic and did not see a similar post; but I might have overlooked it. I am noticing a significant difference running the plugin on my unraid and running it on a pc on the same network. My pc is reporting closer to what I am expecting than the fastest speed reported by my unraid.

It's in the OP and been discussed here a lot. The speedtest script is really dependent on machine and connection. Especially on faster connections, it doesn't work. But it can be useful if that reading is consistent. It will still show you if there's a problem with your connection.

If I ever get around to it I will create a docker to run the script and still use the plugin to parse the results. It seems to give better results in a docker vs running bare unRAID. Don't know why.

Ah, I was just about to ask a similar thing.  On a Gigabit connection the difference is quite severe as can be seen below.  No worries as long as I now know not to look at this plugin in isolation.

 

Now, should I call my provider and apologise.....

I installed this after my 3rd phone call to my provider in as many months about getting speeds as slow as 1.6 Mb/s when I am paying for 300. They called a few days later to "follow up" I told them then that I have loaded the program on my home server and have it monitoring my speeds throughout the day. Since then I have noticed consistently higher speeds. Still not always 300; but you can see a definite spike after that last "follow up" phone call.

That's great nice to see them getting caught:o I guess they figure that the lay person will never know!
