Testing throughput on Switch to Server etherchannel

Medium Priority

How can I test the throughput between a Cisco ether channel on a Cat 3560G and a dual nic server.  The etherchannel seems fine and does work even when I unplug one nic so I imagine the Load Balance is working.  I just want to determine the difference in throughput compared to a single nic connected to a non etherchanel port on the switch.  Is their any free software to do this?  
I just want to quantify what I am gaining from having an etherchannel (Besides Fault Tolerance)
:Port 1 and 2 is the etherchannel in question

use command "show int g0/1" "show int g0/2" "show int port-chan 1" you can get 5 minute statis on both physical interface and etherchannel port.
