As the network manager for our county library district, I've put together several simple scripts in .bat files...
that the helpdesk can access to verify the speed to and from our branches hop by hop and document the slow down or lack of slowdown.
This shows either there is no slow down or pinpoints where the slow down is. The output is easily printable and can be run immediately on getting the report.
