Node-red-contrib-speedtest config error

I've been using this node for almost a year without any issues until today... for some reason I'm now getting the error:

Error: Configuration - Could not retrieve or read configuration (ConfigurationError)

Has anyone experienced this issue? If so, how do I go about fixing it?

It looks like you have already opened a GitHub issue which is what I would have suggested.

Interesting because I haven't opened a Github issue. But since my post, I've heard from fellow ham radio NR users (who use the same node) they are experiencing the same issue. So I suspect one of them opened the issue on Github. Somewhat pleased to hear its not just me :slight_smile: so fingers crossed the developer will release a fix.

Haha, sorry, the id on GitHub looked similar and the time was so close. Hopefully the author will help out.

FYI I am happily using Speedtest and it continues to work without error. I'm running it hourly and logging to Influx DB.

That said, the speedtest I am using doesn't have a configuration node. I'm using node-red-contrib-speedtest 1.1.0 and it works well.

Hope that helps?

@hazymat Mat, can you provide some other info:

  1. what device and OS is it running?
  2. what version of Node-RED and node.js

That could be a big help in figuring out what is happening because on my
Pi 3 Model B Rev 1.2 running Buster
NR v2.1.1 and node.js v14.21.3

using node-red-contrib-speedtest v1.1.0

I get Error: Configuration - Could not retrieve or read configuration (ConfigurationError)

Ubuntu 20.04.5 (running within a virtual machine on Win Hyper-V)
NR v3.0.2 (you should upgrade!)
node.js v17.5.0

Odd numbered node JS are not supported. You should use node 16 or 18 LTS

do you have nvm or n node version manager installed?

I have nvm yes. Okay thanks - I had no idea. I'll upgrade to 18.16.1

I suggest getting rid of it, it just causes confusion. Note, that is nvm not npm.

It is a test pi that I was trying it on.


  1. what device and OS are you using?
  2. what version of Node-RED and node.js

RaspiOS 11 v5.10.0 (virtual machine)
Node v16.20.1
NPM v8.19.4
NR v3.0.2
