    testing network connection speed

    i was just think the other day, what is the performance like on the various network segments around the site. What do you folks in ICT support land use to test the network connection speeds. I have thought on just timing how long it takes to download a 100 mb file to a workstation.
    Is there any tools or processes you guys use that i can utilise?
