add internet speed test to support tools

Add an internet speed test (using something like speedtest-cli or a nagios check_speedtest-cli) to the management interface support tools. This check should bypass DPI, IPS/IDS, AV, etc. so users can tune the security services for optimal protection and speed. This could also be used as a reference when setting up QoS or even as variables in QoS settings as internet traffic speeds often are increased without user knowledge and the current QoS bandwidth settings are static. Periodically check internet speeds and report in the network graphics and executive reports.

    On the web, you can find a lot of internet speed test tool and these Internet speed test tools and apps will let you check up on your internet speed. It does take a little longer than others but it makes five different tests (or maybe more) and it's ad-free. If you are router user then you can boost your internet my taking help from the support team like Belkin Support, For more visit there site https://www.belkinroutersupportnumber.com/

    As more people switch to an IP phone system, adding packet loss and jitter would be great as well as the above mentioned features.

    And when tech support calls for "the internet is running slow" come in, you can easily check whether onsite or remote.
