Hi Network experts :-)
I had a simple query I was hoping you all could help me with. We have two servers that need to speak to each other, AppServerA and AppServerB. However, I notice that the "communication line" is sometimes reset because one of the servers states that it has recvd no response from the other.
The vendor says we need to measure for packet loss between the two servers.
Problem is, the issue is very intermittent, so it's not like I can run ping and I will see one of the four packets dropped.
Does anyone know any utility that I can use to measure packet loss over the course of, say, a day? I just want to see if there really is packet loss, or if the application is for some reason timing out.
Also, any way to measure if the bandwidth is getting saturated and that is what's causing the disconnection?
