tracert a good way to see network bottlenecks?

I was just messing around when I came across tracert in the Windows Command prompt .... and I realised...that there is a lag most probably internal on our network...from resnet... more specifically the ip...192.146.136.190 So the question is...is tracert the right way to look for bottlenecks? Zizzi

Ok I did the Ctrl Alt F1 thing in Ubuntu...and I got some sort of a prompt...

I ran NTFSFIX /dev/hda1 - my C: drive,

and it refused to mount...saying permission denied...then it also went onto say that the volume is corrupt

Any ideas?

Thx

The problem with that is the partition is NTFS...trying to mount with ntfs-3g...results in "permission denied".

So I cannot even backup my data...and format...any ideas?

Thanks

So how do you use your bandwidth?

Just interested in finding out - any new and cool things out there that will help me gobble up the 1.3gb a week limit in just hours......??? You Tube, MetaCafe, Yahoo Launch are some that come to mind. Also, the University's own iCast (http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/newsandevents/icast/) will be sure to ...

Fuck dude. When they say - they are going to refresh the whole resnet - you would think something would improve right?

Guess I gotta live with this though.

So as part of the Resnet we are going to get a 1024/256 Kbps connection - contention ratio 50:1. But this is by far the best point: A maximum weekly download limit of 1.3 GB (190Mb a day), approximately 5 GB per month. This is imposed in order to facilitate fair & equal access for all ResNet Ser...

Oh! Sorry god, I am international student - didnt realise about contention. But! Say 2mbit = 2000Kbit If contention ratio is 1:50 (as per ur last post) 2000/50 = 40Kbits per user worst case scenario Therefore, for Resnet... If there are 6000 users, then total bandwidth required (as per ratio of 1:50...

Simple calculations

bandwidth = 8oMbits = 80000Kbits

# on resnet approx 6000 people

Therefore:

Bandwidth per user:

80000/6000 = 13.333Kbits per user!
