Dual WAN/ Multi WAN Speed Tests

Will the speed test reporting and on demand testing work in situations where someone has dual WAN or multi WAN setup with multiple ISPs? Would either the daily testing or on demand testing be affected by the multi WAN configuration (load balancing vs failover)?

I route traffic by IP.

 

One IP always goes through one WAN port, the other always through the secondary WAN port.

 

Is it possible to designate which port Speedtest uses and alternate?

I should add I m running Domotz on a Synology DS412+ with 2 ethernet ports.

Unfortunately, at the moment, this functionality is not supported. However, thank you for your feedback and for your suggestion. We will look forward to add this to the list of supported features.

I am trying to set up a method to test multiple WAN connections. 

 

I thought of doing it by setting up a ping to remote URL (multiple sub domains of the same server) , and then placing rules on the firewall, but this did not work as the domotz translated the url to an ip so I could not differentiate between them. 

Domotz does not seem to allow me to set the port to ping, so couldn't use that to differentiate either. 

 

So looking for a way where the domotz box can send a ping with a differentiator that I can route on the firewall but ultimately go to the same destination (to ensure consistency bergen paths). 

 

Suggestions? 

 

Thanks.

Hi TimAG,

Thanks for the posting.

If you have a multi WAN connection on your Network, Domotz by default monitors only the primary one (through the gateway).

 

You can check the WAN connection monitored by Domotz under Network -> Info tab.

However, please consider the following workaround suggested to one of our customers:

<<

Just a quick note about an idea I came up with for a dealer.

 

"ITC has DUAL WAN Feeds and I use recursive routing to know if the ISP is up or down. If the DNS servers I picked for each route become unreachable... the router moves to the other feed. I have a few firewall rules that make sure the web power switch pings those DNS servers ONLY OVER their specific connection.

No pings for 5 minutes straight... reboot the offending modem.

 

Q: "Is there a way to know if we are on FiOS or Comcast? Like could Domotz notify me?"

 

A: "Sure... I will set up an External Host in Domotz. maybe cloudfare at 1.1.1.3. Then I will set the router to only allow pings to go to it over the FiOS feed. Then name it 'FiOS WAN CONNECTION'. Set up alerts for Device Goes Up, Device Goes Down, and Heartbeat Lost."

 

Pulled the plug on the FiOS ONT... got an alert. In Domotz "FiOS WAN Connection went down" Powered back up and got the right alert too.

 

I am sure someone else probably did something cooler than this... But this worked perfectly."

I hope this suggestion helps in your case.

Best regards!
