Measurement Labs(M-Lab)

Measurement labs has been launched by google for auditing the broadband speed at your home.Measurement Lab (M-Lab) is an open platform for researchers to deploy Internet measurement tools. By this way Google is expecting to enhance Internet transparency and to help sustain a healthy and innovative Internet. This in Beta stage now.

I tried this tool a couple of times and was not successful with all the tools available as the servers were down. But did manage to test the BitTorrent analyser Glasnost and the analysis was quite useful. This tool is to test whether BitTorrent is being blocked or throttled through the ISP or network administrator.
