Question Tracing Ethernet traffic


Need to find a good software that will allow me to trace Ethernet traffic, I have a client who has one link that is very slow.

Simple tools like ping or trace can help the problem. Also try tcp dump to understand where the packets are coming from.
If this is insufficient try 'iptraf' - one of the best tools I have seen.
