Since its inception, M-Lab’s flagship bulk transport capacity (BTC) measurement protocol, NDT, has always been using a single TCP stream. While this allowed us to get detailed diagnostic data about the user’s connection, over time many have expressed concerns about the ability of the single-stream approach to also effectively fill the link and double as a measurement of link capacity.
After January 2024, M-Lab will no longer support the legacy ndt5+raw protocol or mlab-ns.appspot.com service. There are alternatives available for migration now.
As of April 2023, we are excited to announce that M-Lab has a virtual site running ndt-server in all 35 GCP regions.
