Hi all

 

has anyone an idea of a good proxy server, eventually located in Europe (latency)?

I, of course, don't have any bad intensions, I need it to test server speed of my VPS as I am optimizing it for faster loading.

 

So far, I found positiveproxy.com (no SSL, but fast), proxfree.com and sites like hidemyass... but not sure if I will be able to test my server response times and load times?

 

I hope someone could help me out here, never really used a proxy before :$

 

Thanks!

Why not just use a site like Load Impact?

 

You can't just use a random proxy server for performance testing since you have no idea how saturated the pipe is and you'll be adding the delays between the proxy and yourself as well.

That's an awesome site you got there, thanks!

Any similar service that has servers located in Europe? My site is located in Europe too.

I have a box in UK that has a 10GB pipe - what would you like me to test? ;)  If you want me to download a file via http or ftp, etc.  That would not be a problem
