line capacity

I have a 512 KB line connected to 2 routeurs.With the command "show controller" on the serial interface , I note the routers receive a clockrate of 512KB. But I would like to know if there is means to know the effective maximum capacity ( flow ) on the line. I tested with 1000 pings of 18k each but the results are not satisfactory.

Re: line capacity

With the information that you provided it looks as if 512Kb is your limit. If you have an external CSU/DSU then you are receiving the clocking information from there. It looks as if the CSU is only set up to use 8 of the 24 total channels in a T1(If you are using a E1, 8 out of 30). If this is an active connection there are many applications you can use to monitor bandwidth usage. MRTG is a good one and it is free. Bandwidth monitoring will give you much more reliable data that ping response times.

Re: line capacity

Thank you for your answer. In fact, what I want is to find a means to send flow on this line in order to know from how much it is saturated.I want to see if the flow goes up until 512KB or not.
