Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You can download a program called Q-Check to calculate the bandwidth throughput…

It has a brother/sister (whatever) program that can do lotsa tests on the connection but I’ve forgotten the name of it and it costs money :( Q-Check is freeware.

Hope that helps.

I would be seriously thinking about WHY you would have a 2mb link in this day and age…unless the hardware/software was on the way to the rubbish dump and you happened to obtain it for free (either that or Telstra hooked it up) hahaha

    It might be a bit overkill in your case, but a bandwidth management solution allows you to not only discriminates bandwidth utilization per port, connection etc. but also prioritize them, therefore optimizing overall bandwidth (preventing, for instance, web browsing from taking all of it) For example, though being pricey, Allaire Communications' Netenforcer can do it

    If you a really serious about mataining a certain level of availabilty, I reccommend HP's Open View Network Node manager as a all-in-one solution for managing all critical aspects of your network. It will also help you track these stats over time.

    You might check into a program called Paesler Router Traffice Grapher (PRTG), very nice way to show bandwidth utilization of anything that uses SNMP. http://www.paessler.com/prtg

    Another good program to show usage on any node supporting SNMP is MRTG. This program is free and we found it easy to set up with either linux or windows. rt

    I agree - user MRTG. In many environments, HP OpenView is unwieldy and expensive. Go to OpenXtra for the best installer for Windows. They make it easy to get it installed and set up without having to install any dependencies. http://www.openxtra.co.uk/products/freestuff.php They have several other awesome open-source network management tools wrapped into automatic installers. There are also several other cool bandwidth and network management tools on SourceForge.net. Qcheck is great, but only tells you the available bandwidth for that fraction of a second that you run it. It does not give you continual bandwidth analysis, but it is a great troubleshooting tool when the application team or client groups instinctively say "it's a problem with the network" (even though it raraely is). I hope that helps.
