I am trying to remotely test the internet connection on a headless server and am looking for a cli to do so. Speedtest-cli seems to give wildly inaccurate results and inconsistencies compared to the website.

Are there any other good alternatives or methods I can use?


Maybe give a try to iperf.

Run it on the server with iperf3 -s and on the client with iperf3 -c server

By default, the server listens on TCP port 5201.

For more details, look at the man page iperf3(1)
