We have a large network which is undergoing a great amount of change.
When a user calls we want to be able to tell if there is a network
performance problem or an actual application problem.
I want some UNIX application which will sit in diverse areas of the country
and enter some type of test transaction, after completing the transaction
report the outcome to a central system for data aggregation.
What I'm trying to discern is when I'm having a problem with my "X" based
application's performance or a common garden variety network slowdown.
