The single best tool I use for such purposes (specifically for real-time checking) is Matt's Traceroute (MTR).  It's a curses based traceroute that performs repeated traceroutes, and tracks min/max/avg response of all the hops between you and your destination IP.  It will also highlight where packet loss is occuring.

Excellent tool for such purposes.

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
