Hi Experts,

Are there any software tools that can be used to test the time / average time it takes for an application to authenticate the user when the user logs onto the application against Active Directory via Kerberos V5 authentication?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can easily track these requests using Performance Monitor and look at the Kerberos Authentications counter and you can also use the NTLM Authentications counter as well.

These counters are measured in seconds.

Hi Will,

You can just use Kerberos but NTLM is also there if you want to see this data.
