Tried it out.. seems nearly useless/pointless in it's current state.  To make use of this docker it would seem that you should configure it with more arguments as seen here https://github.com/librespeed/speedtest/blob/docker/doc.md

 

Also, it would seem that it takes some amount of customization to get working in the first place... there appears to be no servers configured by default to run a speed test against.  So hmm.. more work and effort involved than it might be worth just for a speed test.

 

The privacy policy leaves much to be desired.  It's unclear whether or not the TELEMETRY option turns off all the data collection mentioned in the privacy policy.

What exactly is needed in your opinion?

 

Telemetry isn't anything we added, so you have to talk to the librespeed devs about that one.

Maybe I'm misunderstanding but this is a selfhosted speedtest application that you and other users can test the speed to the server it's installed on. Any telemetry is stored on YOUR server. e.g. http://192.168.1.34:8264/results/stats.php There you can see the telemetry data that is mentioned.

What is needed, or at least what would be extremely nice, is to be able to just install the template and run it .. out of the box, so to say.  I mean having to track down and then configure your own servers to run speed tests against is not good..  why have a working docker template that doesn't do anything?

 

I have no need for a speed test docker.. so I installed it just to check it out because it was new... found that it doesn't work.  Delete.  That's what most people are going to do.

 

Scanning through the librespeed doc file, apparently you need to add files to the server (appdata folder?) that are not included with this docker but are in the github



To install the speedtest frontend, copy the following files to your web server:

speedtest.js

speedtest_worker.js

Optionally, the results folder

 

Wait a minute... hold the horses... I was under the impression that this was a normal speed test docker.. but after some more reading this is not a standalone speed test application... it's a server/client setup.  That changes everything.

 

Test backends: the servers used to actually perform the test. There can be 1+ of these, and they only host the backend files.

 



Test backends

These are the servers that will actually be used to perform the test.

To install a backend, simply copy all the files in the backend folder to your backend server.

 

So this app is only for speedtests between multiple servers that you have access to for installing/configuring the backend stuff, or have access to the ip information for from other people running the backend servers.

 

Librespeed is a very lightweight Speedtest implemented in Javascript, using XMLHttpRequest and Web Workers. No Flash, No Java, No Websocket,

No Bullshit.

 

Perhaps that description needs to be changed to reflect that you can't just install this and run speedtests like Speedtest.net (my impression when seeing it).

This is a speedtest server that is selfhosted and is used to test the connection between the user accessing the server and the server.

I can't seem to get my librespeed proxy working in swag... I noticed that my host port is 3333 (my preference) and the container port needs to be 80 to work. So I can get to it from UNRAIDSERVER:3333 locally, but through the proxy librespeed.subdomain.com results in a bad gateway. Any idea why?

 

 


    server_name librespeed.*;

    include /config/nginx/ssl.conf;

    client_max_body_size 0;

    # enable for ldap auth, fill in ldap details in ldap.conf
    #include /config/nginx/ldap.conf;

    # enable for Authelia
    #include /config/nginx/authelia-server.conf;

    location / {
        # enable the next two lines for http auth
        #auth_basic "Restricted";
        #auth_basic_user_file /config/nginx/.htpasswd;

        # enable the next two lines for ldap auth
        #auth_request /auth;
        #error_page 401 =200 /ldaplogin;

        # enable for Authelia
        #include /config/nginx/authelia-location.conf;

        include /config/nginx/proxy.conf;
        resolver 127.0.0.11 valid=30s;
        set $upstream_app librespeed;
        set $upstream_port 80;
        set $upstream_proto http;
        proxy_pass $upstream_proto://$upstream_app:$upstream_port;

    }
}

Did you use the same custom bridge for librespeed as you use for swag?

Yes... the same “proxynet” I use for all my dockers behind the reverse proxy. 

 

Does it have something to do with the fact that librespeed has a container port different from the host port?

That's the host port and not the one used in swag. Swag talks directly to the container using the container port.

Post your docker run command.

Gotcha works now. Thanks for wasting your brain on me today.

So swag just uses the container name and it’s own ports. Understood.

Hi,

 

I don't see Download results.

Progress bar is grow up when download is tested, but always show 0.00 as result. Upload speed is ok.

After ~20 tests I see big files an patch \appdata\librespeed\log\nginx

access.log = 36MB

error.log = 82MB

Every test adds few MB for each file.

 

Access logs:
