Can Measure Up/Download Speeds of an Online Database?
by flingwing - 4/22/11 4:15 AM
I recently signed up to use a online-based database program
for my company. The online program consists of various modules to help us manage
our company-wide safety program.
We collect and input needed data to comply with international safety
requirements and this database program stores the data on the service
provider's server. We can then see the results of our data collection depicted in various ways
including pie/bar charts and other means.
However, the speeds to access the online database pages seem too slow. When I
select and click to move between program pages and modules, it can take
anywhere from 20 seconds to often more than one minute.
I'd like to report this speed problem to the database program operator but I
would like some additional objective information other than just times required
between page changes.
Question: is there any way I measure the upload/download speeds between my
computer(s) and the database provider's server? I just used Speedlink.net to
test my desktop's speed but that's between my computer and Speedlink, I
Thanks for any ideas.
