I have a few ETL boxen that handle insane amounts of data every night. Hundreds of billions of rows of data get extracted from our OLTP databases, transformed, and then loaded into our datawarehousing machines. Needless to say, we're running into serious networking bottlenecks that are causing some ETL operations on larger databases to take 10+ hours, and each night we can watch the gigabit links on each of our ETL servers peg out at 100%.

I'm working on a project to make a pretty graphical display of customers who are having speed issues so we can quickly isolate potential internet issues.

It's fun stuff, really, it is.
