ION9000 Bandwidth Test

L1 Bithead

I have some ION 9000s deployed in branches and have just brought up basic connectivity (no tunnels etc). I trying to run the bw-test command to see what the internet circuits look like but the command isn't giving me any real details. (see below). Currently all on 5.6.1-b18.

Interface 1 is the internet facing interface. Traffic to internet is functional and the controller interfaces are all talking to cloud management NAT'd through the ION.


Is this a bug in this code release? Am i missing something in the debug or configuration? It looks like it should be pretty straight forward but this test command seems to be giving useless results.

Hi Jon,

The command you used may not help you with appropriate data, it has multiple factors involved in it, and sometimes results are unexpected. You can raise a TAC case and request them to share BW results from device backend access. Backend command is 

#speedtest-cli --source <INT interface ip address>
