I prefer to use IOS tools when possible and you can here. Take a look at IP Service Level Agreement (IPSLA). Here's a link for more info.

Hope that helps.

Thanks for your response but unfortunately the 12.2.18SXD5 version I have on my 6500's does not include IP SLA.

Another tool I use everyday is PingPlotterPro ( It's not free but a very useful tool.
