Performance Testing Across Regions

Just recently I needed to perform some load / stress testing on a web application hosted on the east coast of america.

I had a number of dedicated test boxes around Ireland and the UK

but I was concerned that the geographic distance may be playing a part in the results I was seeing

So I needed to get a server in the US from which I could launch similar tests.

M-Net is a public-access UNIX system based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, owned by Arbornet

You can telnet in to, login with newuser, no password, and it will allow you setup a username with password on a free bsd shell

Great idea. It allowed me perform performance tests on my web app on the east coast from mid western US.
