comment Testing performance from around the world - how do I get a linux shell easily in multiple countries?
@MichaelHampton, apologies, you're right, I was not clear enough in my origin post. Apologies for the sarcastic response, it was unnecessary.

Sorry, you're 100% right, I didn't explain myself very well. Unfortunately I was unable to find a service that provides linux shell access in various countries around the glove. The only solution I could find instead was to use a browser to run scripts that did the same job, and those browsers were spun up in various countries. That was the only solution I could find.

Wow, I hadn't thought of that? Is this really even worth a post? Obviously I can do that, but that's a huge waste of resources and money. If I have to maintain a network of 50+ servers, with hosting costs of say circa $50 per month, then I have a $2,500 a month network of servers that I need to configure, manage, and pay for each month. That was why I asked the question!

Wow, this is great, I had no idea about this. Thanks for that link. Unfortunately this does not solve our problem as we need to operate on other protocols, but this is a great link to have.

Thanks for the response deRailed, but unfortunately we did not consider this option but decided against it. The problem is we'd struggle to compare like for like as people would have different machines, connections etc., and more importantly we probably don't have a good enough geographical spread of users who would help us. So unfortunately whilst the suggestion is a nice one, we don't think it would work.

comment Bash - getting the current user CPU utilisation
BTW. I used this command instead to get actual CPU utilisation, and it seems to work well, top -b -n 1 | awk '{ if ($9 ~ /^[0-9]/) {SUM +=$9}} END {print SUM"%"}'
