Google M Lab or Google Measurement Lab is a new tool from Google that allows anybody to keep an eye on their ISPs. This is much more than a speed test. For example you can see if your ISP hates BitTorrent. However as I write this article the site is not working. Google Trends
Network Diagnostic Tool – supplied by Richard Carlson from Internet2. Network Diagnostic Tool (NDT) provides a sophisticated speed and diagnostic test. An NDT test reports more than just the upload and download speeds–it also attempts to determine what, if any, problems limited these speeds, differentiating between computer configuration and network infrastructure problems.
Glasnost – supplied by Krishna Gummadi and Marcel Dischinger from the Max Planck Institute. Glasnost attempts to detect whether your Internet access provider is performing application-specific traffic shaping. Currently, you can test if your ISP is throttling or blocking BitTorrent.
Network Path and Application Diagnosis – supplied by Matt Mathis at the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center. NPAD diagnoses some of the common problems affecting the last network mile and end-users’ systems. These are the most common causes of all performance problems on wide area network paths.
I’m taking bets on how long it takes me to receive notice from Google that I need to release these domains.
Right now I have an iFrame and Adsense on there. Also there’s 2 other speed tests that you can run.
Google trends currently shows “measurement lab” in their 22nd spot.
