Librespeed results preservation

Hi I made some utility scripts to save periodical results of librespeed measurment results.
The idea is that current module does not support some kind of retention.
It is an non-supported unofficial tool and there is no “beautiful” output.



Speaking of which, for use cases like your’s it would be really great if librespeed would also offer more periodic measurement slots per day. I do understand though that with librespeed nodes running on volunteer effort and money, keeping the number of measurements low is somewhat important.

This can be controlled by /etc/cron.d/librespeed. The default setting is:

~ 1~4 * * * root /usr/libexec/foris-controller/

It means that the measurement is triggered every day at a random time between 1:00 and 4:59. If you want to run the test, for example, twice a day, you can use something like this:

~ 1~4,13~16 * * * root /usr/libexec/foris-controller/

It’s a measure. Librespeed isn’t very telling during the day, maybe better at night, but you can’t rely on it. On the 300 line, it measures 120.

I sometimes just test as a precaution and check for connection failures here Statistics - Graphs … Gateway and DNS of my provider and two randomly chosen IP addresses
