    Re: Connection Speed

    Hi dkp213, what connection speed are you after and how do you want it displayed? From the command line you can look at the files under /sys/class/net/<device>/ which may give you the info you want (for example ./speed, ./device/max_speed, ./current_speed etc). Or "bmon" has a ncurses type text interface.

    It may be overkill for your purposes, but "netdata" provides a dashboard view of system components and is available in the base fedora repo.

    If you prefer CLI "nload" and "iftop" are also available for installation.

    As root, install speedtest-cli using "dnf install speedtest-cli", then run speedtest-cli as a normal user:

    Code:
    [haydn@darkstar ~]$ speedtest-cli
    Retrieving speedtest.net configuration...
    Testing from Sky Broadband (**IP Address removed**)...
    Retrieving speedtest.net server list...
    Selecting best server based on ping...
