It seems that Apple has quietly added a new tool in macOS Monterey for measuring your device’s Internet connectivity quality. You can access this tool via the terminal on your computer. To do so you would simply type networkQuality in the terminal prompt to execute the utility.
Running the networkQuality command will provide the following information once the process has been completed.
- Upload/download capacity (Tx/Rx bandwidth)
- Upload/download flows, this is the number of test packets used for the responsiveness tests
- Upload/download responsiveness is measured in Roundtrips Per Minute (RPM), which according to Apple, is the number of sequential round-trips, or transactions, a network can do in one minute under normal working conditions
==== SUMMARY ==== Upload capacity: 30.221 Mbps Download capacity: 177.802 Mbps Upload flows: 20 Download flows: 12 Responsiveness: Medium (301 RPM)
