Speedtest Track is a program that runs a speedtest check every hour and graphs the results in a fancy way. The back-end is written in Laravel and the front-end uses React. It uses Ookla’s Speedtest cli to get the data and uses Chart.js to plot the results. Are you tired of complicated guides? Do you want something quick and easy? Well today I will teach you how to install Speedtest Tracker on your Synology NAS in less than 30 seconds directly through the Task Scheduler option. It’ll be over in a couple of seconds and it’s essentially child’s play. No terminal required.
Install Docker via Synology “Package Center”.
Go to File Station and open the docker folder. Inside the docker folder, create one new folder and name it speedtest. Follow the instructions in the image below.
Note: Be careful enter only lowercase, not uppercase letters.
Go to Control Panel / Task Scheduler / Create / Scheduled Task / User-defined script. Follow the instructions in the images 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 Speedtest Tracker. 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=speedtest \ -p 8788:80 \ -v /volume1/docker/speedtest:/config \ -e PUID=1026 \ -e PGID=100 \ -e TZ=Europe/Bucharest \ -e OOKLA_EULA_GDPR=true \ --restart always \ henrywhitaker3/speedtest-tracker
Note: Before you paste the code above in the Run command area below, change the value numbers for PUID and PGID with your own values. (Follow my step by step guide on how to do this.)
Note: Before you paste the code above in the Run command area below, change the value for TZ (Select your current Time Zone from this list).
After you click OK on STEP 5 a new warning pop up window will open. Click OK.
After you click OK on STEP 5, select your “Install Speedtest Tracker” Task then click the “Run” tab. You will be asked to run Install Speedtest Tracker – click Yes. 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:8788/ Click Start your first test!
Your Internet Speed Test is completed!
You can set up different settings.
Enjoy your Speedtest Tracker!
