Please note that the results of this test are displayed in MBps, megabytes per second. You will need to multiply this result value by eight to get the speed test result in Mbps, megabits per second.

You can filter by IP and/or port to, for example, check if traffic is hitting an interface or if a remote machine is answering a request.
