iPerf or something else?

Hi,

On a previous forum someone recommended using iperf for testing bandwith between 2 systems and after using it between 2 systems it seems really good.  So it made me think are there better tools before I use this tool? 

What I want to do is place iPerf on multiple systems in stategic locations so when we think the network is slow I can then run the tests, I was thinking of scripting something to call upon all the iperf clients and somehow report it back to a web page. 

Has anyone else tried something like this as it woudl be a great snapshot of the network?

Also what default iperf settings do you use as there are loads.

Thanks in advance guys.
