I've been having some network latency issues everyday around the same time. It usually happens between 1-2pm. I assume that is just people playing around on the internet after their lunch break. I am using Solarwinds Network Monitoring, and i see that the network latency will creep up to almost 9ms during that time. To the point when i ping my laptop from the router only 3 of the 5 are successful. Is there anything i can really do?
I'm also looking for a good free network monitoring program that i can use to see which applications/users are using the most bandwidth at that time. I'm not sure if solarwinds net monitoring can do that, i haven't seen. Or is there a good program that can monitor traffic on each switch port so i can see how much traffic comes out of each port.
