There are a few Kerberos tests out there, kinit on Linux works rather well, that can test its response time.  You can also use some LDAP querying tools to test it.

Can I get examples of tools that run in windows or a vm appliance with the tools installed already?

I don't want to capture packets with wireshark.

Not aware of any tool other than looking on the wire with Netmon or Wireshark.

You could try testing the LDAP connecting. There is actually an accepted answer here already.
