The internet has been full of a few issues lately, but there are some good things about it.
In fact, we have a few new ways to measure it: the DNS speed test.
It is a simple way to tell you the overall internet speed and a reliable way to measure performance.
But there are a few things that we don’t like about it, and we want to share some of them with you.
First, we want you to know that the internet is NOT slow, nor is it slow to the point of being unusable.
That’s why we have built this article.
Secondly, we can’t be completely 100% certain that the DNS speeds are what you think they are.
That is why we want your feedback.
This is just our opinion and it’s a guess.
It doesn’t take much.
Let us know in the comments below.
DNS Speed test for Linux The first thing we want is your feedback about the speed of your network.
The internet speeds are pretty much on par with other networks on the same connection.
However, you can check the DNS service provider of your choice for an accurate test result.
Here’s how to do that: Open a terminal window and enter: sudo apt-get install dns-servers If you don’t have sudo installed yet, then sudo is the default login method for most Linux systems.
If you have sudo enabled, it’s necessary to add it as a required argument to apt-cache-control .
Open your terminal window again and enter sudo dns –test-name “your.domain.ip.name” to get a list of DNS names.
You can also use the –test command line option to get the results for a given host name: sudo dnscmd –test my.domain -t test.domain –test “your-test-domain.com” If your network has multiple names and you want to see how much slower your connection is to a particular name, you’ll need to specify multiple test servers.
To test all of your DNS names at once, you could run: sudo service dns check test Now we’ll run this command to get all the DNS names of the test hosts and their speed: sudo nslookup –list-hosts [your-domain-ip-name] [your.test-host-name.com] -f test.domains To get the DNS host name for each DNS name, we will use nslookups –list to list all the hosts for each test host.
We can use the same command to list the results of all DNS queries using nslook-lookup .
We can also get the query results using nsfind and nsparse: nsfind my.test.domain | nsparse -t 100 -o test.query | grep test If your test hosts have similar names, you will see a list like this: my.testing.domain,my.testing-domain,domain.my.test,domain1.my-test,mydomain1,domain2.mytest, and so on.
You will also see a line with the domain name of the host that hosts the query.
If the DNS server you’re using has a name that starts with test and it has the same query result, then you will get a query result of test.test that looks like this.
If your DNS service has no DNS name starting with test , then you can see the host name of a test server that is listed above.
The query result also shows which hostnames are available for each host, as well as the IP address of the DNS servers for each of those hostnames.
Note that these results can be very different for different DNS names in the same domain.
We also show the DNS query results with a “reverse DNS lookup” command.
This command will give you the IP addresses of the servers that hosted the query result and also the query hostnames of the hosts.
This gives you a look at the network traffic that came in from both DNS servers.
nsfind -o domain1.domain1 nsparse –list test.client -t 4 -o host1 nslook -o [host1] nsfind host1 | nslook host2 nsparse host2 | nsfind … nsfind domain1 | msconfig -n nslook.client.test nsparse nsparse …
If you’re wondering why we can see DNS queries in reverse, we used a simple test.
The DNS servers in a domain were first given a query name (or hostname) and then a query and hostname.
The reverse DNS lookup looks for the IPs of those DNS servers, and if there are any matching IPs, we show the results.
The output of the nslook command is that the server with the fastest DNS connection to host1 is hosting the results, and the server hosting the worst connection is hosting a lower quality result.
If we change the test domain to
