Howcheck LAN-perfomance betwee WS and Server ?

WS - XP_Sp3+NW4.91Sp4 client

SRV - NW6.5SP8


WS--switch--Server (WS connected to the SRv over IP).

How i can check LAN perfomance betwen server and WS ?

With witch speed WS can send packets to the server and can received it from the server ?
( i`m not ask about - with witch speed can write file to the server or with speed can read file from the sefrver)

OK. You are asking about the raw throughput of the network medium?
Suggest you start here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Measuring_network_throughput

There is a decent list of various test apps there.

Ah. That is a problem. There is none of this that can run on the
server. That means that you can test the throughput of the net by using
two workstations.

That means that you still have the NW NIC as an unknown factor. To test
that, without testing the rest, ie disks and stuff, you need something
that will push packets down to the NIC as fast as possible. Ie
something like TSATEST, but for NICs. Let me ask around.

Aaron B wrote this to troubleshoot an issue Novell had with a customer
where they would not believe that the problems they were having with
Sentinel were because of their network. The issue was that their
switch was bad and would corrupt packets in flight, and this showed it.
Calculating md5sums to verify data is what it does for verification of
data integrity in transit but you could instead remove that and have
it simply print out the number of bytes sent or when sending/receiving
is complete.

Send a gigabyte and if it takes eight seconds you're running near
gigabit speeds.

Otherwise send a file some other way, preferably using as little
encryption as possible and avoiding as many network devices as
possible.
