Curious--Looking for insight into better windows network perfmon metrics?? (Windows TA fields/calcs)

Path Finder

Hey Splunkers

Novice question.
I work in a windows enviro. Anybody have a good metric for host network performance????? I was using (TA Windows) something along the lines of bytes_total/sec * 8 * 100 / bandwidth ...(essentially giving me bandwidth as a percentage) . Was also using bytes-in and bytes _out. However, none have proven to be very useful for indicating actual host network performance issues. Was thinking about using web pings to calculate latency???...anybody have any ideas?....Anybody have a query that indicates an increase in dropped packets or an increase in network errors that they have implemented and find useful. Any help is much appreciated.

The Splunk TA for Windows app ( has a "perfmon://Network" input that may collect a useful metric for you.
