OpenSpeedTest is the most accurate and powerful online bandwidth test. You can use it to test your Home/Office LAN speed including your Local Area Network/Wi-Fi. The tool is designed to replicate your real-world connection speed. In this step by step guide I will show you how to install OpenSpeedTest on your Synology NAS using Docker.
Install Container Manager via Synology “Package Center”. If you run an older DSM version (under 7.2), search for Docker instead of Container Manager.
Go to Control Panel / Task Scheduler / Create / Scheduled Task / User-defined script. Follow the instructions in the image below.
Once you click on User-defined script a new window will open. Follow the instructions below:
- General: In the Task field type in “Install OpenSpeedTest“. Uncheck “Enabled” option. Select root User.
- Schedule: Select Run on the following date then select “Do not repeat“.
- Task Settings: Check “Send run details by email“, add your email then copy paste the code below in the Run command area. After that click OK.
docker run -d --name=openspeedtest \ -p 8004:3000 \ --restart always \ openspeedtest/latest
After you click OK on STEP 4 a new warning pop up window will open. Click OK.
After you click OK, type in your DSM Password then click Submit. Follow the instructions in the image below.
After you click Submit on STEP 5, select your “Install OpenSpeedTest” Task then click the “Run” tab. You will be asked to run Install OpenSpeedTest – click OK. Follow the instructions in the image below.
Go back to STEP 1 or you will deal with karma 🙂
The installation process can take up to a few seconds/minutes. It will depend on your Internet speed connection. Now open your browser and type in http://Synology-ip-address:8004 Change the theme to Dark Mode then click Start. follow the instructions in the image below.
