Determining your bandwidth with
In order to adjust the bandwidth rate, we first need to know how much bandwidth our
bridge has. Fortunately, there is a nice script to run a speed test from your command line
that is appropriately called speedtest-cli . This is installed with the following com-
sudo pip install git+https://github.com/sivel/
Run the test with the following command:
speedtest-cli --simple > speedtest.txt
If you inspect the output file, you should see something like the following:
Ping: 107.686 ms
Download: 28.23 Mbit/s
Upload: 5.37 Mbit/s
We'll use the results in this file as the basis for our bandwidth adjustment. At the moment,
we only need to remember its location for later use.
