The Network Test consists of a latency test and a bandwidth test. Latency is the time it takes for a single packet to make a round trip from your client side application to the server. The bandwidth test examines the data rate to see how many bytes per second your network can transfer from the server to the client.
You can provide notes to indicate the conditions for each test you run.
For each iteration, a single packet is sent from the client application to the server and back. A trial consists of the specified number of iterations. The total time for all round trips in a trial is divided by the number of iterations to obtain the average latency that is that trial's result.
The default settings are 5 trials of 100 iterations each.

Select the Run Test button to perform the test.
Latency Results indicate the average round trip time for a single round trip from a PC client to the server.
Bandwidth results display the average data rate in kilobytes per second over each trial.
For comparison, the sample data fields show the results of tests completed at the development headquarters in Redwood Shores. These tests were conducted under ideal conditions; it is unlikely that your results can match them.
If one test result varies significantly from the other trials, discard that information.
