Just wondering if any of you guys know of a product that will test the integrity of data traversing a flat network.

I have had a lot of various intermittent issues on a customers site over that last number of months. I have tried everything except changing the Switches. (All SMC)

Any ideas are much appreciated.

There are many network analysing softwares available in market. Cisco also has a hardware specifically for this purpose, called Network Analysis Module. The Cisco NAM not only provides the ability to analyze packets, but also the ability to analyze them from within the switch or router itself, giving you greater insight into how the network is being used and how users experience the services that your network offers.
