Hi guys

There are moments when people in a particular area of the office have connectivity issues from their local PC's to the actual servers. They will say that connecting from their local machines to the server is taking a while.

I know it may not be necessary, but I would like to know if tomorrow I wanted to show people how you can measure network traffic or even connectivity problems at different points on the network, I wanted to be able to showcase it.

I was wondering whether there are ways of testing each segment of our network to see whether there are any red flags that come up. For example, how would I measure if there is a physical connectivity issue between the floor port their PC's are plugged into and the port on the switch? How about from the switch they are plugged in to, to the server? If so, then can you explain, literally, how would you go about doing this?

Thank you for helping
