Thanks for the responses.
Most people suggested mrtg - which I was already using. I was suggested orca
which is better than mrtg for system stats.
But orca and mrtg are really only good for trends - not benchmarking.
I was suggested "You can reference some tools offer from www.infovista.com"
looked like a commercial version of mrtg
The other option suggested was snoop and netstat - which I knew about and
a bit of work to get some data.
The only other suggestion was bing a point to point bandwidth measurement
tool - which
is kind of what I wanted, but it looks pretty old.
Thanks for the replies
:> There are two tools that are really good:
:> orca: http://www.gps.caltech.edu/~blair/orca/
:> mrtg: http://ee-staff.ethz.ch/~oetiker/webtools/mrtg/mrtg.html
:> We use both. Orca is more server side while mrtg is more
:> router/switch side.
:> Hope it helps.
