Using 'speedtest.py', written by Matt Martz, to check server max bandwidth using speedtest method. It return alert if server bandwidth is slower than given speed.

Note: While managing few hundreds VM/VPS from different VPS vendors, I found that sometime bandwidth slow down without notice. Best practice would be running this speedtest at least daily. If monitoring is required perhaps hourly. You may also want to make sure re-try is more than 3 minutes. Or perhaps one retry.


# Dependency:
- Python (tested with Python 2.6)
- speedtest.py
- Speedtest may require upto 150 seconds to finish the test. Please make sure you set the timeout alert accordingly.

# KNOWN Bug: some server may return time out.
