• LAN Speed Test v3 has been released!

    LAN Speed Test was designed from the ground up to be a simple but powerful tool for measuring file transfer, hard drive, USB Drive, and Local Area Network (LAN) speeds (wired & wireless). It does this by building a file in memory, then transfers it both ways (without effects of windows file caching) while keeping track of the time, and then does the calculations for you. Simple concept and easy to use. You'll find that LAN Speed Test will quickly become one of your favorite network tools!

    Some of LAN Speed Test v3.0 Features include...

    • Completely portable - No installation needed
    • Incredibly small (172KB) and can run from a hard drive, USB Flash drives, etc.
    • Compatible with Windows versions 2000 & up (2000, XP, Vista, Win7, Server2003 & Server 2008)
    • Very fast! Most tests are less than 1 minute
    • Test packet sizes up to 9 GB while taking a maximum of just 10 MB of RAM on your system
    • Progress window that displays progress bar and allows user to cancel at any time
    • Compatible with LST Server for real network performance results without hard drive limitations - Even test your WAN (internet) speed with LST Server
    • Network Scan (lets you see all other computers/devices that are on your network) with the ability to Ping test to any of them
    • Log viewing screen with ability to add notes
    • Scheduling test runs now an option with logging and the new Command Line format
    • Open/Save option to .csv file
    • Selectable Speed Measurements
    • New! Simultaneous multiple stream support
    • New! View Avg, Max, & Min throughput results
    • New! Automatically re-start tests for a set period of time or until manually stopped
    • Revised! Command Line Mode (Allows network administrators to start the test from the command line with all test options now available)
    • And much more!

    Here's what's new in version 3.0 (A=Added, B=Bug fix, C=Change)
    A - Ability to view avg, max, & min test results
    A - Ability to test with simultaneous multiple streams (Up to 25 with LST Server and up to 2 when testing to a folder)
    A - Ability to automatically re-start test (with programmable wait times between tests) for 1-24 hours or until manually stopped
    A - GBit (Gbps & GBps) labels and calculations
    A - Option to bypass drive's write caching during tests.
    A - Packet counter on the status screen
    A - Drop down edit box at 'Folder or Server IP' to remember last 9 entries
    A - 'Check for update' link on help screen
    A - 'Check for update online at startup' option
    A - Running from Command Line now supports all testing options!
    A - Each test begins with a Latency (RTT) measurement and displayed along with other new details in debug window for advanced troubleshooting
    A - Cut/Copy/Paste/Select All/Delete/Edit Note hot key support in 'View Log' window
    A - '# of Data Streams' and 'Test Status' fields added to log
    C - LAN Speed Test does not keep individual settings based on MAC address anymore. Now there is only one group of common settings. Previously you had to set up each client manually. Now you set it up once, and all tests from all clients will default that way. If you need individual control for certain computers, you can do this from the updated command line interface, and this will override any default settings.
    C - Change right click options in view log ('Select All', 'Clear Selection', 'Copy With Headers', 'Copy Without Headers', and removed 'Copy All')
    C - Log file - all fields are now SQL compatible. This allows for easy import into SQL Server, MySql, etc.
    C - 'Number of Test Packets' max increased to 1,000
    C - Test filename (when testing to folder) now consists of random numbers and test number so that there can be multiple tests done to one folder at the same time
    C - Fixed the timeout issues with slower WAN connections. Timeout occurred if a packet took longer than 5 seconds to send/receive. The new logic allows up to 60 seconds.
    A - High DPI aware in Windows 7
    B - Fixed minor display issues in Windows 7
    B - Fix debug mode displaying write speed twice instead of write speed then read speed
    C - Updated Logging, Printing, Open/Save, debug, and help routines to support all the new features
