Internet Speed Indicator Needed


#1

Hi I’m Daily user of OSMC and I really like it it’s amazing and thanks making it very easy to use. But I like if you guys add connectivity Indicator or download/upload real-time icon on home screen so it will be so easy to monitor the network connection…

This is already planned, however a speed test isn’t always indicative of how you’ll get on with streaming, as that can vary based on the file locker.

As you can imagine, providing a speedtest service will take a lot of bandwidth, so we need to work on the best approach

For a console option:
sudo apt-get install wavemon Then execute with wavemon and F10 to exit. You get some stats…not the actual speed…but what was downloaded/uploaded, signal strength etc

but for a much more detailed / browser interface : http://www.ntop.org/products/traffic-analysis/ntop/
which i tried, and it rocks!

I wrote a guide on how to install it but it was delete due to a misunderstanding.
You’ll have to read through their guide to install it.

Then:
[code]pi@domnfs:~ $ speedtest-cli 
Retrieving speedtest.net configuration...
Retrieving speedtest.net server list...
Testing from BT Global Services (217.33.127.173)...
Selecting best server based on latency...
Hosted by CSD Ltd (Braintree) [45.09 km]: 15.141 ms
Testing download speed........................................
Download: 88.83 Mbits/s
Testing upload speed..................................................
Upload: 87.13 Mbits/s
[/code]
@sam_nazarko I suspect that could be made into a simple add-on.

Speed test is different… need alive status on menu like Clock in right corner or weather information on left … It example… maybe I need to talk about this to Kodi Team … But thanks anyway… :slight_smile:
