How to find out time spent in login

Hi,

We have a web application that uses the windows nt authentication on IIS 6.0 (windows 2003). We notice that before the application loads it takes a good 7-8 seconds and we suspect that the main bottleneck can be the NT authentication process

Can someone suggest some ideas how to confirm this and what free tools can be used for this.

Also can someone explain to me or point to me a diagram of NTLM Authentication

thanks
-anshu
