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.
