What do you think about integrating the speedtest service into VyOS? It looks good for simply checking bandwidth.

I don't think it is expected to get speed to the node itself.
A router is generally used for forwarding traffic. It is better to use iperf to check the speed between 2 hosts.

I agree, this tool is not suitable for diagnosing connections between hosts. But it can be used in general as a check of the Internet service provider.
