Calling network engineers: help me understand latency and packet loss

I’m trying to be more pro-active with regard to monitoring the network at my workplace, addressing any issues that might arise, and answering that ever-present question: “My computer is so slow today! Is the problem on our end, or on their end?” [more inside]

network throughput and latency monitoring on cloud server

I would like some advice. I would like to send test data at intervals from a client to a cloud server and measure the time taken for it to arrive at the server. At the same time, pinging the cloud server at intervals and measuring the roundtrip latency. [more inside]

What is best approach for measuring cloud network latency?

I would like to know what is the best approach for measuring a cloud provider's network latency and jitter e.g. Amazon EC2. While a single ping on the command line can achieve a round trip latency snapshot for that one moment, I was looking for something more comprehensive and thorough. Are there any software tools out there that are particularly recommended and hopefully easy to use for measuring at intervals, network latency & jitter, preferably in Windows? Is round trip latency or end to end latency the best metric to consider? Ping provides roundtrip although if the packet came back the same route it came, then end to end could be found by dividing by 2. Latency and jitter increases in proportion to server load. How could I ramp up server load to let's say a specified percentage? Many thanks!

How can I get the latency/delay out of my phone calls?

How can I get the delay/latency out of my cell-via-network-extender calls or Skype calls or both? Verizon says it's Comcast and Comcast says everything's fine. Could it be my router? Is this just par for the course? I don't want to go back to landline but have to have a good phone line for my home business. [more inside]

At what point do I just give up and get a new laptop?

When I type on my wife's Toshiba Satellite L25-S121, it drops characters. It doesn't drop the same characters, and sometimes there is just a delay before they show up on the screen. I've restored from the factory CDs and updated the Bios, but the problem persists. [more inside]

Linux-really-tricky?

What's the deal with linux-rt? I know that it's Linux with realtime extensions, and that it's recommended for low-latency audio editing. I'm planning on doing some recording for a while (hopefully with something better than my built-in mic) and I'm wondering if apt-get install linux-rt will be more trouble than it's worth.
