A minimalistic speed test library.

Project Description

obur is a minimalistic http speedtest library. It can test the speed between two ends. You can use it via command line or inside your python program.


pip install obur


Command Line

obur <target_url>

Python Program

from obur import measure

measure(url, duration=60, chunk_size=1024)

You can override duration and chunk_size parameters via command line.

For a healthy and accurate speed test result, the target url should be a stream url. You can use puke on the server side for providing a dummy stream url.
