How to Install Speedtest Tracker on Your Synology NAS

How to Install Speedtest Tracker on Your Synology NAS

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 Filament. 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.

Note: This guide works perfectly with the latest Speedtest Tracker v.0.11.0 release.
