We just installed a new T1 line in our office and I would like to fully test it before we put it in production.

The T1 will work as a LAN extension to our remote office. I would like to now how to do kind of a "stress" test where I can see how much data can travel accross and how fast. You know that one is the Theory and other is the reality.

We have implemented not only one but three connections to create a full mesh connection between our 3 offices in Canada.

There was a 1Mbps line between Montreal and Toronto, but the speed was really bad. We increased that to 3Mbps but the users (and the IT department) can not notice any improvement in speed. All the services are centralized in Toronto.

I would like to know how I can test which applications are the one eating the bandwidth. Any help is appreciated.
