Network bandwidth measurement
This is probably more of a general network question than a security question. But scince I know there are some competent people here, I´ll ask anyhow
I need a program that can measure the actual bandwidth of a connection. The ones that connect to som generic site on the Internet (lots of web based such around) won´t do the trick.
The thing is I have a pretty large number of DSL connections on my network, and I need to know if the ISP is giving me the bandwidth I´m paying for.
The perfect scenario would be to have a server component on one of the central servers, and a small client on one of the computers at the peripheral DSL sites.
I´ve tried NetStatLive which is available at www.analogx.com. It works great, but it involves manually copying files to one of the computers at the DSL sites to see the actual bandwidth maximum. I could use something more automated.
