Web100 based Network Diagnostic Tool
This java applet was developed to test the reliablity and operational status of your desktop computer and network connection. It does this by sending data between your computer and this remote NDT server. These tests will determine:
- The slowest link in the end-to-end path (Dial-up modem to 10 Gbps Ethernet/OC-192)
- The Ethernet duplex setting (full or half);
- If congestion is limiting end-to-end throughput.
It can also identify 2 serious error conditions:
- Duplex Mismatch
- Excessive packet loss due to faulty cables.

Test and results
“The NDT performs 2 TCP throughput tests between your desktop computer and this NDT server. First, data is streamed for 10 seconds from your desktop to the server and then a second 10 second test is performed in the opposite direction” Visit the website for more information.
