streamspeed Build Status

A simple way to keep track of the speed of your readable streams.

Usage

var StreamSpeed = require('streamspeed');

var rs = fs.createReadStream('somefile.avi');
var ss = new StreamSpeed();
ss.add(rs);

// Listen for events emitted by streamspeed on the given stream.
ss.on('speed', function(speed, avgSpeed) {
  console.log('Reading at', speed, 'bytes per second');
});

Keep track of even a group of streams easily.

var group = new Streamspeed();
group.add(stream1);
group.add(stream2);
group.add(stream3);

group.on('speed', function(speed, avg) {
  console.log('now reading at', speed, 'bps');
});

API

new StreamSpeed(timeUnit)

A group that can be used to watch several streams. Will emit speed events. timeUnit defaults to 1000 for speed per second.

StreamSpeed#add(stream)

Adds stream to group.

StreamSpeed#remove(stream)

Removes stream from group.

StreamSpeed#getStreams()

Returns a list of all streams in the group.

StreamSpeed.toHuman(bytes, timeUnit)

Convenient method to convert bytes to a human readable string.

StreamSpeed.toHuman(1500); // 1.46KB
StreamSpeed.toHuman(1024 * 1024) => 1MB
StreamSpeed.toHuman(1024 * 1024 * 20.5, 's') => 20.5MB/s

Event: 'speed'

  • Number - Speed at which streams in the group are being read.
  • Number - Average speed.

Will be emitted after the second time a stream is read and only if there is a change in speed.
