File copy speed over network

Hi all,

Is there a built in utility in red hat to see transfer rate of files. For example, I'm coping a large 5 gb file over from a mounted filesystem (emc san). It seems to start out at a good speed but then after about 40mbs it starts staggering. Now I have a gigi copper network so I wanted to see what rate im getting. Also, i verified there is no load on either the emc unit or the server I'm copying to.

you can run vmstat or iostat while transferring the file or you can use a secure copy (scp).
