    IS there a way I can test ad auth in time intervals, for example once every
    minute to identify bottlenecks

    Thanks,

    What sorts of bottlenecks are you looking for?

    I am looking for a simple way to see if any delays occur in authentication
    process. Really a login and bind check to AD.

    I am in the middle of a build out for 60 K + user in AD. Need something to
    see if AD can handle the load for authentication?
    I might be going about this wrong but are there any tools to use to monitor
    AD health in this scenario?
    Mind you that this is testing phase....So i would like to see how AD breaks

    Thanks,

    Well, there are always delays - that is the nature of a network.

    IMHO, AD will have no trouble with 60,000 users. But where you might have
    problems is if the hardware is underpowered.

    I'd suggest you continue your search in a networking or active directory
    related newsgroup. Yes, there might be a scripting solution, but from the
    sound of it you would be better off looking for whatever types of solutions
    may already exist.
