While it looks simple enough to install, what advantage does it give over:
wget -qO- bench.sh | bash
The benchmark option in PG
The inbuilt speedtest server
The rclone benchmark under options

I mean if my server is downloading/uploading constantly, what do I gain from having this try and take bandwidth away from doing something productive? It'll always be lower than the connection speed unless the server is idle, I get it is another widget for organizr, but it seems like a widget for the sake of a widget?

I guess my answer is similar to why some people dedicate resources to Tautulli or Varkan - historical/semi-live data presented in a visually pleasing and at-a-glance format.

Really poor comparison. Tautulli logs historical data, that generally isn't affected because you are downloading/uploading data in the background. For your data to have any significance - let alone be in any way comparable to any other data - you'd need to stop downloads and uploads at a set time to benchmark, then resume them. Every hour. If you don't then your SAB/Get downloads will take the majority of your bandwidth along with and Plex etc. tasks/streams and uploads. I love stats and data, but pointless data is just noise.
