What Speedify Stats Tell You About the Performance of Your Internet Connection
On the 90th episode of Speedify LIVE we hold our weekly Office Hours with one of Speedify’s lead developers to talk about a number of useful features, and small details in the Speedify app that some may not be aware of!
We take a look at what the different statistics in Speedify are, how you can monitor your streams while bonding connections in Speedify, as well as give some hints on what may be coming in the future.
Here are our 5 takeaways from this Office Hours:
- Many streaming services, like Amazon Prime, don’t like people accessing their content through VPNs, so Speedify has developed a Bypass feature which will allow specific services to go around the VPN, while the rest of your traffic still goes through it and gets encrypted.
- Speedify allows you to monitor your real-time Latency in the app! This measures how long it takes for traffic to go between the Speedify client and the Speedify server and back. It’s a measure of your internet connections and how well they’re doing generally.
- Loss is another statistic you can monitor in Speedify, which is essentially the packets that get dropped as they’re traveling through the internet. The Loss section is measuring the percentage of lost or dropped packets that are sent between the Speedify client, server and the internet.
- If you’re looking for a headless option for Speedify, you can run Speedify through the Command Line Interface (CLI) on Linux, Windows or MacOS. You can choose to just install the Speedify package, which is just the background service that runs without the user interface at all, and you’ll be able to control it through the CLI.
- In addition to real-time graphs, Speedify also offers a number of more “historical” statistics: Streamergency saves are when Speedify is helping save your livestream or video call from drops or slowdowns; Seamless failovers are when one of your connections drops and Speedify switches over to the other connections; Data encrypted is how much data you’ve sent through in a given period; Top Upload and Download speeds are your peak speeds through Speedify in a given period.
