pc to pc throughput tool ?


I want to benchmark how fast my ethernet cards really are versus their advertised speed. What's the best app you folks have used to measure NIC to NIC data transfers on your local area network?

Interesting... but I'm wanting to see how fast LAN packets are flying, not inspect their contents.
