Here you can test your own web connection or connection to the outside world, or find statistics for quality online between the beacons. The Beacons are typically close to the access link to UNINETT in an institution and are running tests among themselves over UNINETT and also offers the opportunity to be tested against. See more about the beacons . (Note that some of the services are closed and require login.)
Traceroute shows the route the traffic follows from the beacon towards you.
Yt measures how fast you can transfer data between you and the beacon. Simple and user friendly.
Iperf measures the performance of the beacon with another measure pole or machine with Iperf.

Mping measures and presents roundtrip times and packet loss between a configurable set of machines.
Multicast Beacon is based on multicast probing. All the beacons regularly send packets to a common multicast group. All will thus receive such packets from all others. They record the time delay and possible loss of packets. The results of all measurements are presented in a matrix. Since the measurements are based on multicast, it is also designed to reveal any multicast problems in the backbone.
