Detecting the faster proxy

8 posts in this topic

There are 4 proxy servers through which I can connect to internet. Their speeds varry everyday. I know how to use Regwrite to set proxy settings in IE. Is there a way that I can detect which proxy is faster at that time when i run a script and Regwrite proxy settings to IE. Code will be appreciated.

...Their speeds varry everyday...

On what do you base that statement?

In other words, how do you know "Their speeds varry..."?

How did you measure "thier speeds"?

Can you replicate that basis in a script?

Can you replicate that measurement in a script?

the proxy is configured in the browser. when i use one proxy it takes more time to load google.com... when i use other proxy it takes less time to load google.com

..so you have two threads going on the same topic???

Did you clear the IE temp file cache between your tests with google and the two proxies?

why not do a ping with each one and then arrange them by ping response time?

thanks for the reply. Pinging has been blocked to the proxy... but i have figured it out i can use the time taken to load the page for each proxy

good idea, just make sure to do a IE Hard Refresh between them

I'm not looking to debate the usefulness of the Ping function, but according to this (and other sites) Ping might not be a good indicator of network performance: http://carolinanet.helpserve.com/index.php...;kbarticleid=70

excerpt:

ICMP echo packets are often given second-class treatment by routers and target hosts. This means that ICMP Echo Requests and Responses may be backed up behind traffic that is considered more important.
