Determining the cause of internal network latency

Hello,
I'm having some really bad network latency issues on my LAN.  Pings to my gateway (sonicwall 4500) and to my switches (NetGear GSM7352Sv2) are pinging >1ms then jump every few to hundreds and timeout every so often.  

I've been checking my port statistics and no ports look overly active.  I have RSTP enabled on my switches (we have 7 switches in a single stack, plus 3 few linksys switches patched into the stack).  We have a pretty complex network as well.  I'll find my network diagram and upload it momentarily.

Also, it seems like this began to get really bad when I installed the SonicWall last week (we had a Pro3060 that bit the dust on me).  I'm doing a packet capture also to look for any machines that may be acting up.

here's my ping return, pinging the stack:

in management switch do
traceroute or tracert to this 192.168.0.6 ( i assume this is your sonicwall - is it right?)
 also you can try using http://www.wireshark.org/download.html and do tracert to  192.168.0.6 from windows cmd on computer before 7 switch stack and after - should give you some ideas
also try pinging different ip ports those stacked switches - can you check bridge priority on different switches - your 7 stacked one should have lowest and any other should have much higher.

you can also try ping -t 192.168.0.6 and switch off all other switches and try connecting them gradually to see when you get rstp flapping.

what routing protocol are you using - or is it all on layer 2 and RSTP?

It's layer 3, and I have RSTP running

Any suggestions on how to sniff it out?  i don't see any ports being overly active

1 is your main (root rstp) switch is constant or is it flapping (if it is - manualy in switch ios set up lowest switch id)?
2 what routing protocol?

Not 100% sure I'm following - the root switch is having the issues (it's the 192.168.14.10), that's the stack, with switch #7 being the stack master.  

2 what routing protocol?
The switch itself is claiming 'local' as the routing protocol.

JAN PAKULAICT Infranstructure ManagerCommented:
Route Type = Dynamic
i would change it to static -
Protocol= local
what is that?

preference = 0 - if you want to use it should be 1

metric 1 is lowest it is ok

JAN PAKULAICT Infranstructure ManagerCommented:
this switch is stacked - but to work properly with different switches it has to have lowest bridge id

Seems odd to me as well, I'm new to netgear switched so I'm not sure

I'll take a look and try that out

I'm pinging from VLAN 1, with IP 192.168.0.6

also update flash rom
We do have the most recent ROM installed I believe but I'll double check

are you getting any errors information from the sonicwall log that might indicate an issue? did you build the 4500 from scratch when you replaced the 3060 or did you import the settings from the 3060 into the new sonicwall?

by the way, i requested a mod to delete post, http:#a35011975, due to sensitive information. correct?

remember that small hidden  4 port switch with rstp on can cause this problems by becoming root bridge (lowest bridge id)

I'll run a tracert from the switch management and see if i get anything funky.

lso you can try using http://www.wireshark.org/download.html and do tracert to  192.168.0.6 from windows cmd on computer before 7 switch stack and after - should give you some ideas
also try pinging different ip ports those stacked switches - can you check bridge priority on different switches - your 7 stacked one should have lowest and any other should have much higher.
you can also try ping -t 192.168.0.6 and switch off all other switches and try connecting them gradually to see when you get rstp flapping.

I've been running wireshark and pinging the firewall (and my switch stack, among other things) all day and haven't been able to get too much out of it (although I've removed a few units from my network that looked awfully chatty).  i have noticed that I'm seeing a whole lot of 'mailslot' traffic, and soem of it looked to eb comign from an IP that I cna't fidn on my network.

are you getting any errors information from the sonicwall log that might indicate an issue? did you build the 4500 from scratch when you replaced the 3060 or did you import the settings from the 3060 into the new sonicwall?
I originally did an export from their site, and it didn't work out, most of my rules were busted.

As for the 4 port hub, I'm going to pull it and see if it helps also.  If we're not solved by end of day today, I believe we're going to do the following:
1. Disconnect links to all external buildings
2. Disconnect the link to our 'back closet'
3. Disconnect the phone system
4. Disconnect the switches that are not in the stack
5. Disconnect the switches in the stack, straying from switch one and moving towards 7

Hopefully this will show us who\where the issue is originating.

sounds like it's probably not a sonicwall issue. i'd suspect that if there was a funky route (or something like that) you'd get latency out of the gate, not the weird delay.

Brian UtterbackConnect With a Mentor Principle Software EngineerCommented:
How often do you see the delay? Are the hosts in question on the same physical network, or are there routers between them? The problem could be delays triggered by ARP requests. Another common delay source is when the switch and or router runs the spanning tree algorithm.

JamesonJendreasAuthor Commented:
OK - Looks like the issue  was related to multiple little things and some real housekeeping that needed to be done.  So essentially it really did take a packet-level analysts to discover what was causing all these issues.  What we found was:
1. Multiple ports / NIC cards were not auto-negotiating correctly - either hard set or replace the card
2. Units being overly 'chatty' - found PC's that were attempting to be the master browser or sending out huge amounts of NETBOIS.  Disabled NETBOIS and turned off master browser
3. Fixed some routing - There were some routes in my building-to-building connections that seemed off.
