Im looking for a way (or software) that will run a speed test and log the results into a database.  I want to be able to log the internet speed from our datacenter, our website, and our external backup site every 60 seconds.. then save the results into a database..  Then I can run some trend reports based on the day or week of the month.  

Thanks!

It only monitors the connection betwen your machine and your ISP.  I'm looking for the overall seed between my computer and the datacenter (located in an different city).

all these products monitor either the switch or the network card.  I need to be able to log actually bandwidth speed from various locations.  Such as downloading a file from certain sites and log the speed.

Thoughts?

For that case you could use RouterBoard OS(Mikrotik).You could see realtime traffic and monitor/control bandwidth.

Wow, I'm shocked that there isn't any bandwidth software out there that will track and record actual bandwidth speeds
