Ability to do bandwidth and speed tests for the WAN interfaces.
I would like the ability to run speed tests and check interfaces errors for WAN testing.
This would be a great feature. Currently having a use case right now that would be beneficial. Will check out the wget CLI method for now.

You got my vote. Please add this ASAP!!
Great idea, please implement as soon as possible.

I am quite a fan of using the CLI. Maybe as a workaround, using wget.
I agree a WAN speed test AND a LAN speed test for local hosts would be phenomenal.
The added ability to see what parts or features of the Firewall the traffic was hitting would also be great.
This would help to see if there was a feature slowing down traffic on the Firewall.
Other manufacturers like meraki offer a speed test on the WAN bandwidth and available throughput.
Please add this option, would be great to have the ability on SG firewall.
It would be awesome to get that.
...And also between internal hosts and the firewall. This would be a nice way to test the bandwidth of wired/wireless LAN.

100% agree. I have had 2 clients ask for this feature of late.
In S.A. one has the ability to acquire bandwidth from an ISP with an "SLA", that is practically assurance of a specific speed set (within a minor marginal deviation - in reflection to "Best Effort" / "Net Neutrality").
However, SLA stating 100Mbps (up/down) and at times receiving 1Mbps/0,5Mbps is a rather large deviation.
When approaching the ISP, we are told to take all equipment off their device and do a direct speed test (...sometimes it still show poor performance and other times they reset on their end and things look fantastic, ...only to dip in throughput in a couple days time)
What would be Fantastic is to be able to set a "WGet" type utility on the WAN port that you could set a number "n" of predefined / scheduled checks over a specified time (...similar to a "SpeedTest") - that could produce a report based over time to indicate to the ISP
"What we are Receiving from the ISP"
"What we are Using from the ISP" (which is available at present)
