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?

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