if you had a script that ran a traceroute say every 30mins to the same
destination. Add the total time of the hops. You'd soon get the average time
of the route during 'normal time'. after that any significant deviation
could be highlighted/alerted or recorded with the full traceroute details. 
althought I dont have a script like this.

"When you wake up in the morning, Pooh," said Piglet at last, "what's the
first thing you say to yourself?"
"What's for breakfast?" said Pooh. "What do you say, Piglet?"
" I say, I wonder what's going to happen exciting today?" said Piglet 
Pooh nodded thoughtfully.
"It's the same thing," he said.

Subject: [Dshield] Any reaonable way to measure connectivity speed?....

I'm telecommuting from Texas to Tennesee. I have noticed this past
weekend a large loss of throughput. Is there any way on a linux box to
quantify connectivity? I would like to know where the slowdown occurs.
In absence of being able to do that, I would like to be able to quantify
what I am subjectively seeing in screen responsiveness so that I can
know if changes I make are helping, hurting, or neutral.

Thanks, BobH
