To accurately estimate how long it will take you to upload your data, you should first test to see how fast you can upload data to the Internet. To test your upload connection speed while a backup is NOT running, we recommend that you use the Axcient Speed Test at https://speedtest.axcient.com/
What does the speed test measure?
This speed test provides you with information on four simple indicators about your Internet connection:
What is tested?
|latency||delay between you and the server||reaction time|
|jitter||variation of the delay||stability|
|download||rate of data receiving||download speed|
|upload||rate of data sending||upload speed|
What is the meaning of each indicator?
- Latency is the responsiveness of your connection
When it is low, it indicates that the information takes little time to travel between you and the server. The lower it is, the more information flows "in real time". It generally reflects the distance traved by data between you and the server.
- Jitter is the stability of your connection
When it is low, it indicates that latency does not vary much and that your connection is stable. On the contrary, when it rises, it indicates that the reactivity of your connection can vary greatly from one data exchange to another.
- The download and upload speed are the size of your connection
When these numbers are high, a lot of data can be exchanged in a short time between you and the server. This makes it possible to retrieve and send large files faster.
Which browsers are supported?
However, no version of Internet Explorer is officially supported.
Where can I review the source code?
This speed test is completely open source. Its source code can be reviewed online, on its GitHub repository: https://github.com/e7d/speedtest
