One of the first few things you would do after getting your hands on a new cloud instance is probably to run a few bandwidth measurements on speedtest.net. I certainly do. But it gets a bit tedious having to find out the Singapore servers without a GUI.
Fueled by my own laziness, I have created a
sg-speedtest script which would automate the whole process – installing the necessary packages (and removing them thereafter), testing all the Singapore servers and printing the results on the screen. All in the time while you go grab a coffee.
