On our site, people sitting on various floors are all complaining of slow speeds when they save or want to access files on the fileserver mainly (windows 2003). This is also attached to a SAN.
There are around 200 users, of which 100 are complaining of slow speeds. Our department is fine though and we all access the same file server. However, we are connected via a separate network switch.
My main question is that those people complaining are possibly connected to the same switches. Is there a way I could connect something to those switches to find out whether something is broadcasting on the network? I've never done that before so is there any direction you can give guys? The switches are all various models/makes and most of them are non-IP managed switches (i.e. they were just plugged in without any config, but they are chained).
