btw whoever was testing from snap IP with a mismatched reverse lookup, your TCP/IP window settings are too small to get maximum performance. effectively limited you to around 750k/sec maximum speed. (tcp window scaling factor of 2, looked like windows client)  - I'd say what the name is, but it's someone who requested their reverse lookup changed, so they may be trying to be private...

and it seems the IP address isn't being fudged at least.  some transparent proxies keep the IP intact though.

IP address starts with 123.

that looks like a transparent proxy, indeed.  it may be based on your source address.  the thing is speed tests aren't usually cached.

that testfile.zip on port 80 should be cached... so if you try again it should go fast.

the other thing you can do is something like curl -x 4.2.2.2:80 http://www.google.co.nz  .. and if you see what looks like google then there's a transparent proxy :)

You can go to: http://netalyzr.icsi.berkeley.edu/ to see if the cache screws with traffic badly.

I'm not actually against caching fwiw.

freitasm: JAVA PLUGIN. The damnation of the Internet.


it's no worse than flash.  And it's needed to do the low level network tests.

Don't think you're being proxied.

18:52:20.715126 IP SCM.56137 > 37.77.82.128.24: Flags [S], seq 2196604161, win 8192, options [mss 1460,nop,wscale 2,nop,nop,sackOK], length 0
18:52:20.715179 IP 37.77.82.128.24 > SCM.56137: Flags [S.], seq 1437017000, ack 2196604162, win 23360, options [mss 1460,nop,nop,sackOK,nop,wscale 6], length 0
18:52:21.016182 IP SCM.56137 > 37.77.82.128.24: Flags [.], ack 1, win 16425, length 0


Blanked out your IP, it was you... see how it says "win 8192" and "wscale 2" ... 

window size can be between 0 and 65535 bytes, wscale tells it to do << on it

so with python:

>>> 65535 << 2
262140

Which gives you nearly 256k.  Your destination is blocking ping, but hop before is 300 msec.  so assuming your ping is like 33 msec.  that's give you aproximately 768k/sec (your ping is slightly lower probably, and there can be momentary delays - but 750k/sec is about what you're likely to hit if you don't get hit by congestion.

You can determine the ping of the initial connection by:
>>> 21.016182 - 20.715179
0.30100300000000146
And curiously enough you're 301 msec, so hop before is basically accurate.  Maybe you're on fibre.


18:52:39.442991 IP SCM.56137 > 37.77.82.128.24: Flags [.], ack 6540801, win 65335, length 0
18:52:39.445777 IP SCM.56137 > 37.77.82.128.24: Flags [.], ack 6543721, win 65335, length 0

So you're advertising the maximum window size for every two packets.  The [.] means acknowledge data up this point, send me more.

I'm against it if it starts causing problems.
First problem is it has broken speedtest.net. :(

test http downloads work better.

SCM: Not sure if it will help but here's my trace to dagga.yoafrica.com. I see there is a new hop in mine, mdr.core.snap.net.nz never seen that one before.



This is me, cleaning up the reverse-dns to make things nicer to look at :-)
