Bob et al.

Might this be of help? This product displays, e.g. loss per cent per
each hop for transfers via any given route.

VisualRouteR Personal Edition
Analyze Connectivity Problems and Locate IP Addresses

Supported Platforms:     

VisualRoute Personal Edition is available on the Windows, Solaris,
Linux, FreeBSD, and Mac OS X platforms.


During the last few years, I have used several versions of this product
and have been pleased with all of them.

Especially when bought as a bundled product it is quite inexpensive.


Visualware, Inc. offers trial versions of the products so you can try it
without investing in it and see whether the product offers you what you
are looking for. Might also give you a clue where the loss of throughput
you have experienced takes place.
