From OOB after version 1.1.0.0, oobping has the -e option which times the requested operation. This can be invaluable in diagnosing a slow connection and determining which phase the problem is occurring in.

A simple example is:

oobping -e -h myserver -t 8888
Host: myserver, Port: 8888
Attempting connection...OK
Examining Server...
    OOB Server Version: 1.1.0.00
    OOB Server Name: OOB
Time for execution: 0.16s

If this is repeated with -u and -p you can work out the extra time required to perform the operating system logon:

oobping -e -h myserver -u myosuser -p mypassword
Host: myserver, Port: 8888
Attempting connection...OK
Examining Server...
    OOB Server Version: 1.1.0.00
    OOB Server Name: OOB
Trying to authenticate...OK
Time for execution:0.52s

This example clearly demonstrates the extra time required to authenticate a user.
