Testing internet performance in a room
Folks, hope you can offer advice:-
I'm receiving a lot of reports from one classroom stating the internet connection is poor, pages crashing or not loading, squid proxy errors etc.
I've worked with our proxy provider to overcome a couple of issues with the proxy setup, however I need to run some tests from PCs in that room to see if I can identify any issues.
The classroom switch is 100Mbs procurve, droppingto a 1Gbps procurve backbone - 3 hops to the proxy (one of which is gig fibre)
Speedtest shows reasonable figures, however obviously that is only part of the picture.
What other tests woudl you advise running? I'm thinking DNS resolution as a start, and a prolonged ping to check for packet loss.
Also, what tools would you recommend for running these tests?
