Tool to monitor slow network connections?
Posted on 2014-04-02
I have a problem that I want to troubleshoot and I'm not sure how.
We have some random slowness in our network that is effecting logons of our students.
I do not have access to our switches, firewalls, or any of that information.
I have already confirmed on my end that all domain controllers are functioning properly, I have removed almost all of the group policies applying, the same configuration has been duplicated in other labs, yet, we still have some slowness at weird times. I've seen it myself while on one of the lab workstations. Everything just hung and then all the sudden it unfroze and all was well. I couldn't connect to anything while it was going on.
I have network monitor but have yet to figure out how to connect it to a remote system. Is there any tool that is free that you could recommend to troubleshoot this? I can ping the systems when this is going on, but a lot of the windows services that are hanging are not using ping.... I don't think?
Any help is appreciated.
