where are the servers connected ? check for errors on the switchports ? see if you have any drops or CRC's on interfaces... is it 10 ms from all PCs on the network, or only from a certain Layer 2 switch connectivity ? Check for trunks and see if you have any issues there... try pinging the servers from the local switch, to check if there are any NIC issues with some servers....
I apologize if i had misunderstood your point, but Ping is definitely a very good tool to test network performance.. especially on layer 3... on layer 2, you can test Spanning tree misconfigs, application testing works on layer 5-7 etc... but on a LAN network ping response should be constant and not varying too much... if the network has some granular qos configurations,w ith multiple levels of priority or queues defined, sometimes PING can take lower precedence and can result in drops, but generally not on Gig LAN networks... sometimes it can also be due to layer 1 or NIC card issues, and not an issue on Layer 4-7 !
Saravanan - in any case, do you see performance issues due to this ? Can you let us know of your network more ? As krishna suggested, can you check the layer 2 - 7 performance too ?
Hi everyone, I would like to thank you in advance for any help you can provide a newcomer like myself!

I am going to design and build an LAN network under a tunnel underground with long distance between the switches.
I will have 2 Catalyst switches and 8 Industrial IE3000, and they will be connected with fiber.
For now I am planning on use Layer-2 s...
