How can I check my VPN performance
Posted on 2004-03-26
Portugal Telecom installed a VPN linking my 2 offices.
They used 2 Cisco routers.
On office "A" they installed a DSL access with 1024/256 Kbits on office "B" they installed a DSL access with 512/128 Kbits
I don't know if I'm wrong but shouldn't be the same on both ends ???? The VPN is not going to work with the slower speed 128 Kbits ????
The project manager said that as the DataBase server is on the "A" side it should have a larger bandwith. ?????????????? why a larger bandwith if on the other
side it has only 128 Kbits to receive ??????????
What I want is if someone can give me a link to a software that could test 24/7 the speed and performace of my VPN and generate a log so I can get a report out of it.
I'm having lot's of problems because sometimes the remote access is OK and sometimes it is very very slow
