Smile Trying to find tools to identify the network latency issue's we are having.


Good day!

I hope someone would be able to point me in a good direction. I've been asked to find some good tools to use to track our latency issue's we are randomly (but increasing) having within the network of the company I'm working for.

I prefer using tools within linux rather than in windows but will use windows if I need to.

I've done the basics, with pinging and trace routes. Pinging from my station at work to google is often 248ms. Trace routes seem random. At one point it would indicate that the latency is on our side. Next trace route test would then indicate the problem was on the Provider's side. We're trying to narrow it down, but with several servers and several pc's running in our network the simple tools just aren't good enough.

Can someone suggest some good (preferably free) tools I could look into using to track it down?

Thanks a bunch

Carlo

Hi,

iptraf is one of them and wireshark is another one.

Both are free and just install under RedHat, Fedora, CentOS with this command.

Code:
yum install iptraf wireshark -y

I was aware of Wireshark but not really sure if my superiors would like the fact I'd be able to read their non-encrypted emails and such even by accident lol However I'll give iptraf a try

Again thanks a bunch
