Diagnosing network latency issues

I have two servers both with gigabit network cards that were experiencing severe latency issues communicating with one another. The culprit eventually turned out to be that one of the servers was patched into a 100mb switch port.

pinging the servers always returned <1ms

Is there a tool that could show the actual latency / rate of transfer between the servers compared to the maximum that should be possible?
