Zen Speedtest

Test your Internet connection bandwidth to locations around the world with this interactive broadband speed test from Ookla. If Speedtest results are lower than expected, reconnect and ping each device one at a time to find the slowest ping/connection. Being able to test internet speed via the remote connection to the Zen Router would be INCREDIBLY helpful. Please, please, please. Merlin92101 Level 1. In working with the Asus AX6600 series.

Use the Zscaler Analyzer app to analyze the path between your location and the Zscaler Enforcement Node (ZEN), or to analyze the time it takes for your browser to load a web page, so the Zscaler Support team can detect potential issues. The app performs an MTR (Z-Traceroute) and a full web page load test (Z-WebLoad). The results provide the Zscaler Support team with all the information they need to debug network issues quickly. You can run the app multiple times at different intervals, for a more comprehensive view of your network path and performances. For example, you can run configure the app to run every hour for five hours.

The results are designed to be sent to the Zscaler Operations Team through Zscaler Support for analysis. Their experience and overall view of the entire cloud allow them to interpret the data and identify potential issues in the network path. Zscaler highly recommends that you do not try to interpret the results without consulting Zscaler Support.

Zscaler Analyzer TraceRoute

Use the Zscaler Analyzer app to analyze the path between your location and the Zscaler Enforcement Node (ZEN), so the Zscaler Support team can detect potential network issues. The app performs an MTR (My Traceroute) and the results provide the Zscaler Support team with all the information they need to debug network issues quickly. You can run the app multiple times at different intervals, for a more comprehensive view of your network path. For example, you can run configure the app to run every hour for five hours

The results are designed to be sent to the Zscaler Operations Team through Zscaler Support for analysis. Their experience and overall view of the entire cloud allow them to interpret the data and identify potential issues in the network path. Zscaler highly recommends that you do not try to interpret the results without consulting Zscaler Support.

If you are using a GRE or IPSEC tunnel to send traffic to the ZEN, the MTR must run from a PC that does NOT go through the tunnel. An MTR done through a tunnel will not show useful information.

Running Z-TraceRoute

When you launch the app, click the Z-TraceRoute tab to see a window similar to the following.

Do the following to run the Zscaler Network Analyzer app:

  1. Define the settings:
    • Host: If your computer is connected to a ZEN, this field displays the host name of the ZEN. You can specify a different host name, for example, if you want to analyze the path to another ZEN.
    • Run Every: The app can run automatically at different intervals. For example, to configure the app to run every hour, 10 times, change Repeat to 10, and then choose the interval to Repeat every 1 hour. These 10 tests are called a group.
    • Packet Count: Number of packets to send.
    • Hop Limit: The maximum number of network hops measured.
  1. To define the following settings, click the Advanced Settings button to see the Z-Traceroute - Advanced Settings window.
