Kintyre Shinnecock speedtest agent

Project description

Kintyre Speedtest Agent

Build Status codecov PyPI PyPI - Python Version

An Internet speedtest monitoring utility for Splunk HEC. Speedtest and other networking information is captured and sent to a central Splunk instance via the Http Event Collector. Scheduled monitoring is handled by the OS scheduler of your choice (often cron or the Windows Scheduler).

The Splunk app and TA are in a different repository and will be available via Splunkbase. This app represents the core work surrounding the speed-test data collection and standalone agent version.


Using pip:

pip install kintyre-speedtest-agent

System-level install: (For Mac/Linux)

curl | sudo python - kintyre-speedtest-agent

Note: This will also install/update pip and work around some known TLS/SSL issues

If pip is not present or out of date on your Linux system, see the Python Packaging doc regarding Linux Package Managers. Or more generally, see Installing Packages.


If you wish to help with development, or simply install via git, we suggest installing into a virtual environment that can be thrown away and recreated as necessary. Pull-requests welcome!


pip install virtualenv


git clone
cd shinnecock-agent || exit 1
virtualenv venv || exit 1
souce venv/bin/activate || exit 1
pip install -r requirements.txt
python install

Testing locally:

# Assumes tox and multple python versions have been installed (i.e., pyenv)

# Accelerated test run bypassing the acutal "SpeedTest" portion (save some bandwidth)
tox -- --fake-it


Configuration is handled by a configuration file stored in the user's home directory. Run the --register command to bootstrap the configuration with appropriate values. You may re-run this process at any time, or edit the kintyre_speedtest.ini file directly.

Example registration command (using the Kintyre's dev server):

kintyre-speedtest --register \
    --url \
    --token dbbcd446-f5e7-412b-a971-dae59167a72f

NOTE: Be sure to run '--register' with the same OS user account used to schedule the execution of speedtest via your scheduler of choice. Otherwise, the configuration file will not be found and the script will fail.


This project internally uses:

  • speedtest-cli - for all Internet performance tests
  • ifcfg - For cross-platform network interface enumeration
  • requests - For posting to the HEC endpoints
