Ways to measure bufferbloat

It seems that the DSLReports bufferbloat test is not longer available to all users. Does anyone have an alternative suggestion?

I found some scripts that seems to use netperf here, but they seem to run inconsistently for me (betterspeedtest.sh for example gives the same results with or without my SQM enabled which is in stark contrast to the DSLReports test when it was working.)


So https://github.com/richb-hanover/OpenWrtScripts is a more recent iteration of the same scripts. And guidosarducci created a speedtest package for openwrt partly based on betterspeedtest.sh, see [Speedtest: new package to measure network performance](Speedtest: new package to measure network performance, and https://github.com/openwrt/packages/blob/master/net/speedtest-netperf/files/README.md)

https://www.bufferbloat.net/projects/bloat/wiki/Tests_for_Bufferbloat/ has some more pointers.


@moeller0 - Thanks, this is great alternative that both stresses the router's CPU similarly to the dslreports test as well as returns similar results.
