PING widget

The Ping Widget is in charge of checking HTTP ping round trip time to various locations, finding out the closest viable data center.

This test gives a general indication to the distance between the user’s location and the various data centers you operate.

Estimated run time: 8 seconds

Customization

During onboarding, we can:

  • Define the data center locations to check against. Typically, we test 2-3 data center locations based on the location of the user himself
  • Note that the data centers we use for Ping tests are the ones running the Bandwidth Speed tests

When to use?

Today we tend to run the ping as a silent and more comprehensive test in qualityRTC. This leaves room for more tests to run as visual widgets.
