Best ways to conduct Speed and Network Performance test from OpenWrt?

Thanks for the link to OpenWrtScripts. I especially like the work that @guidosarducci has done to make an installable package. He took the basic script and added CPU measurement (so you can tell if the actual speed test is maxxing out the CPU) and more.

Shameless self-promotion: In addition to the speedtest scripts, OpenWrtScripts has:

  • A script for saving and re-install all new packages after flashing new firmware;
  • A script to configure a router repeatably (if you're flashing frequently)
  • A script to repeatably configure an IPv6 6in4 tunnel through HE.net
